Utah singers, David Osmond and April Meservy, will join Tom Thumb and other cast members from the movie, "The Greatest Showman," in the Hollywood on Broadway production of “Angels of the Greatest Showman” coming to Kingsbury Hall in Salt Lake City, Feb. 8-9.

She has written and released several albums and is known for her cover of the hit song "With or Without You" that was featured in the 2018 Olympics. She recently won the Audience Choice Award at the 17th Annual LDS Film Festival Awards.
