    Margaret Nixon McEathron, known professionally as Marni Nixon, was an American soprano and ghost singer for featured actresses in movie musicals. (Wikipedia) When she was chosen to sing the lead role in the film "The King and I," she was given $420 and instructed not to tell anyone that Anna Leonowens wasn't the one singing.

    Jason Weaver

    Jason Michael Weaver, also known by his stage name J-Weav, is an American actor and singer whose well known for his role as Marcus Henderson on The WB sitcom Smart Guy, but barely known at all for his outstanding job as the singing voice of Young Simba in The Lion King. (NOTE: If you guessed Evan Saucedo, you were really close! Saucedo sang as Young Simba eight years later for a bonus song in the film when Weaver was too old to reprise his role.)

    Christopher Reeves

    That's right, the man who played old Clark Kent dubbed Young Clark Kent. This decision is no doubt confusing and it was especially mind-boggling to Jeff East who didn't know that none of his lines were going to be spoken by him.
