    She sang songs written for her by Robert Rodriguez on the last two 'Spy Kids' films' soundtracks. She's a talented kid, her voice seems fine for this particular musical. Rent the films, form an opinion and let us know.

    I only saw the first one, and I've never seen Hairspray, but I'll for sure look into it. It's always a pet peeve of mine when Hollywood types get cast on broadway but aren't very good.

    Ohmygosh, she's OLD now! That means...I'm old, too! It was hard to tell if she can actually sing or not in the movies, what with all the "help" these tween stars get with their recordings. One of the movies (#2 maybe) has a concert segment at the end.
    A signature should go here.

    of course if she really did get a lot of help for that then they'll sure show it after she performs.

    Is this really live? Probably not, but it's promising.
