Nala Meet Nala

The superstar, who voices Nala in the live-action film, recently met Syndee Winters, the actress who portrays the character in the hit Broadway musical adaptation. Winters and members from show’s ensemble sang Nala’s moving song “Shadowland” for an audience at WACO Theater Center’s 3rd Annual Wearable Art Gala in Los Angeles on June 1. Joining Beyoncé, 37, were Jay Z, Blue Ivy, Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams, Tiffany Haddish, Tyler Perry, Anthony Anderson, and Magic Johnson.

The event raised money for the non-profit Where Art Can Occur theater center in Los Angeles, a gallery and performance space founded by Beyoncé’s mom and husband Richard Lawson.
