“I can’t stress enough how much I love her,” she wrote. “Her voice is clear as crystal. She is salt of the earth. I am obsessed with her. Lea (@msleasalonga), you are my idol.” 

Not only did the 47-year-old sing the “Mulan” favorite, but she joined Keala, Darren Criss, and other theatre performers in a jamming session and sang along to “Seasons Of Love” from the musical “Rent” and “A Whole New World” from Disney’s “Aladdin.”

“The Voice” coach was in the Hollywood piano bar, Tramp Stamp Granny’s, following the closing of the most recent Hollywood Bowl productions, one of which was “Annie,” her latest project.
