Though Zendaya doesn’t star alongside Morrison in Finding Neverland, she did lend her voice to Finding Neverland the Album, singing the “Neverland” track. She joined other singers, including Nick Jonas, Jennifer Lopez, Ellie Goulding, Paloma Faith, Kiesza, Rita Ora, Jon Bon Jovi, Pentatonix, Christina Aguilera, John Legend, Gary Barlow, Christina Perri and the Goo Goo Dolls on the star-studded record.
“It’s about getting a chance to see some of the biggest names of music stepping outside of their normal lane and what we’re used to hearing from them,” Republic Records’ executive Tom McKay said about the album. “In essence, fans of these artists will discover the story and the play in a way they wouldn’t have otherwise, and on the flipside, fans of the play will discover some of these artists in a way they might not have in their daily lives.”
Morrison appears on Finding Neverland the Album on “We Own the Night,” a song he sings night after night on Broadway playing the writer who created beloved children’s character Peter Pan. Best known for playing Mr. Schue on Glee, Morrison, a well-respected stage actor, admitted there was something about Barrie to which he could relate.
Morrison told uInterview earlier this year, “You know, he’s going through this incredible writer’s block when we meet him in this show, and I’ve been in that place where I’ve just kind of felt in a rut in acting or in singing, and you just kind of have to break through those walls.”
Finding Neverland is currently playing at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in New York City. Finding Neverland the Album was released earlier this summer.
