Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's eldest child is set to make her Hollywood Bowl singing debut at the highly-anticipated 'The Lion King' concert event with a rendition of 'I Just Can't Wait to Be King'.

AceShowbiz - North West will step into the spotlight as she performs "I Just Can't Wait to Be King," marking a significant milestone in her budding career. This event will see North joining a lineup of iconic "Lion King" veterans including Nathan Lane, Billy Eichner, Jeremy Irons, Ernie Sabella, Heather Headley, Lebo M, and Jason Weaver. Adding to the galaxy of stars, EGOT winner Jennifer Hudson will lend her phenomenal voice to the concert.

The concert promises a lavish musical experience with a full orchestra performing Hans Zimmer's Oscar-winning score, all under the baton of conductor Sarah Hicks. Fans can expect to hear beloved Elton John and Tim Rice classics such as "Can You Feel the Love Tonight," "Circle of Life," "Be Prepared," and "Hakuna Matata."

For those unable to attend, worry not! The shows will be filmed for later broadcast as "The Lion King at the Hollywood Bowl" on Disney+. This celebration, presented by Disney Concerts, Fulwell 73 Productions, AMP Worldwide, and Live Nation-Hewitt Silva, showcases the enduring legacy of "The Lion King" saga.

Since its first release in 1994, "The Lion King" has become a global phenomenon. The animated film led to the wildly successful, Tony Award-winning stage musical in 1998, and a 2019 live-action movie featuring the voices of Beyonce Knowles, Donald Glover, Lane, Eichner, and Alfre Woodard.

The saga continues with "Mufasa: The Lion King," a live-action prequel directed by Barry Jenkins, set for a December 2024 release. This new installment will feature Beyonce and Jay-Z's daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, making her feature film debut as Kiara, the daughter of Nala (Beyonce) and Simba (Donald Glover).

Variety recently caught up with Billy Eichner after the first rehearsal for the Hollywood Bowl event. "All of the producers have flown over from London," he said. "We're all finally in person together with the orchestra and the conductor and choreographer Jamal Sims and so many dancers - so many dancers! I feel like I'm on Madonna's Blond Ambition tour."

With so many elements coming together, this "Lion King" concert promises to be an unforgettable event, marking a significant chapter in the never-ending legacy of this beloved story. Young fans and longtime admirers alike are in for a magical journey as "The Lion King" roars its way back into our hearts once again.
