Released last month, "THE GREATEST SHOWMAN - REIMAGINED" immediately ascended into the #1 position on iTunes "Top Albums" chart, with a staggering 90,000 units sold in the first week alone and global streams now approaching 350 million.

Among those were "Rewrite the Stars" featuring multi-platinum artists Anne-Marie and James Arthur, Panic! At the Disco's rework of "The Greatest Show" - lauded by Billboard as "a triumphant rendition" - and multiple GRAMMY® Award-winner Kelly Clarkson's stunning take on "Never Enough." Entertainment Weekly hailed the latter track, asserting, "The Greatest Showman's power ballad is in good hands," while People Magazine declared, "Kelly Clarkson might just be the Greatest Show-Woman...
