In the movie, the song 'Never Enough’ is performed by Jenny Lind, a Swedish virtuoso singer played by Rebecca Ferguson, and the singing voice was dubbed by Loren Allred in The Greatest Showman (2017).
Jenny Lind, was a real-life opera singer, and was considered to be one of the greatest soprano voices of the 1800s but, because recording technology was still decades away, all people could do was pass down her singing abilities through word of mouth.
'Never Enough’ was written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul for the biopic on P.T. Barnum, a showman who invests his fortune in Jenny Lind and her voice in the movie.
