Haley Reinhart has been dropping hints for songs and videos she’s been working on for her upcoming EP.

As the “Heroic” Ms Vox, Haley Reinhart sings Bowie’s iconic song in the new Robert Rodriguez Netflix movie #WeCanBeHeroes duetting with her daughter A Cappella (Lotus Blossom) during the show’s climax.

In an instagram post, Haley talks about how getting the opportunity to sing the Bowie classic came to be:
“Fun fact: The incomparable Robert Rodriguez contacted me to be in his amazing film and gave me the opportunity to think of a song that I could sing a few a cappella lines to… I was driving, immediately pulled over on the side of the road, and sang a ballad version of Bowie’s iconic, “Heroes” into my voice memos… Robert went ahead and built an entire scene around it!!! I’m so grateful for you @rodriguez, your imagination, and trust in the creative process.”
