Not only did McCrary know every note and word to the Jackson 5’s version of Smokey Robinson’s classic, “Who’s Lovin’ You,” but his vocals were incredible.

McCrary is set to star as Simba in the upcoming live-action version of The Lion King movie alongside stars like Beyoncé and Donald Glover. McCrary has worked with Glover before, appearing on the song “Terrified” from Childish Gambino’s Grammy nominated album, Awaken My Love.

Seeing the young star in action gives us high hopes for the new Lion King.
