Play "The Greatest Show", the lead piece from the new musical film "The Greatest Showman" - who knew Wolverine could sing like that?! Joking aside, Hugh Jackman does an amazing job spanning two full octaves in the epic song - impressive!

You may need to shift the song up a few semitones to play the low intro on flute, piccolo or recorder. The rest of the song is higher so you can play that in it's original key :)
