Allegiance Star Telly Leung Turns Up and Turns It Out in ...

His gift is his song and this one's for you. Allegiance leading man Telly Leung released his second solo album titled Songs For You, and it's an absolute joy, a perfect blend of pop covers and showtunes. Below, BroadwayBox gives the album a first listen (hey, the holidays were busy!) and reacts in animated GIF to hearing each track for the first time.

1. New York State of Mind

Telly Leung-  Songs for You-  New York State of Mind

So jazzy—fun way to kick it off.

2. You Gotta Be

Telly Leung-  Songs for You- Gotta Be

Yes, throwing it back to the '90s like what. Song holds up and his voice sounds sick. You won't be able to stand still.

3. I (Am What I Am) Have Nothing

Telly Leung-  Songs for You- I am what I am

Seriously, this mashup is everything—the arrangement, the vocals. Get ready to live and then press repeat. #Praise

4. Human Nature

Telly Leung-  Songs for You- Human Nature

5. Dreamscape

Telly Leung-  Song for You- Dreamscape- Schwartz

I wasn't familiar with this Stephen Schwartz song before but it's just beautiful and Telly's voice is the perfect match for the soaring moments.

6. Leaving On A Jet Plane

Telly Leung-  Songs for You- Leaving on a Jet

It's more uptempo than I've ever heard this song and that works really well. It brings a real momentum to the song while keeping its beauty.

7. I Just Had to Hear Your Voice

Telly Leung-  Songs for You-  I just had to hear your voice

8. Second Chances (from Allegiance)

Stunning.

12. A Song for You

Another song with just killer vocals. This album has been a pleasure, and it's definitely going into rotation. Pop it in the car; throw it on your phone; save it to sing along with in the shower.

If you want to hear Telly Leung's incredible voice live rush over to Allegiance at the Longacre Theatre before February 14.
