The Rumors Are True: The Umbrella Academy's Emmy Raver-Lampman Has an Amazing Singing Voice

No, your eyes weren't playing tricks on you — The Umbrella Academy star Emmy Raver-Lampman really was a part of the ensemble in Disney+'s Hamilton. Raver-Lampman actually pursued musical theater during college and was a part of the original Broadway cast of Hamilton as a member of the ensemble while simultaneously understudying Angelica Schuyler, Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds, and Eliza Hamilton. She's also been in productions of Wicked as Elphaba and Aida as Aida, as well as the ensembles of Hair, Jekyll & Hyde, and A Night with Janis Joplin. As you can see, her singing résumé is stacked with some pretty powerful roles.

If you're not a theater fan, Raver-Lampman's singing ability may come as a shock, given that you've likely only seen her as as Lily Lofton on Jane the Virgin, Rebecca on A Million Little Things, or Allison Hargreeves/The Rumor on Netflix's The Umbrella Academy, which marks her first major television role. While it may be somewhat difficult for Raver-Lampman to sing in season two of the show due to her character's unfortunate encounter with her sister in season one, you can at least check out the videos ahead and imagine what could've been.
