Keala Settle will lend her signature belt to the 2018 Academy Awards March 4. The Tony nominee, who plays bearded lady Lettie Lutz in The Greatest Showman, shared the news on Twitter.

In the film, Settle sings the breakout anthem “This Is Me” by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. After receiving an Oscar last year for La La Land, the Dear Evan Hansen Tony winners are once again up for Best Original Song for the tune. The song earned them a Golden Globe earlier this year.

Settle, whose Broadway credits include Hands on a Hardbody, Waitress, and Les Misérables, recently released her first EP: Chapter One. It includes five tracks, including her rendition of “The Rose.”

The Greatest Showman tells the story of P.T. Barnum's rise to fame through a glamorized movie musical lens. In addition to Settle, the film stars Hugh Jackman, Zendaya, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, and Rebecca Ferguson.
