Macy Smith’s incredible career change was inspired by the Brookside and TV legend.
Kristen Bell Tattoos reported that the EastEnders star wowed fans when Claire Sweeney lifted her onto the stage of her sold-out show Proud Cabaret to show off her sensational singing voice.
Maisie, 20, was with a group of friends and her look-alike sister when Claire Sweeney invited her on stage to perform an impromptu song.
The series star “broke the house down” with an incredible performance of Adele’s hit during a party with friends including Chris Boyson and Abby Quinnen.
Maisie, who said goodbye to Walford last year after 13 years playing fan favorite Tiffany, told pals after performing at the waterfront burlesque show: “I really enjoyed it.
A source told Kristen Bell Tattoos: “Claire has been such an inspiration to her and has been rooting for Maisie since day one because of her extraordinary talent.”
“She took Maisie on stage and blew everyone away by singing Adele.
Now they are in many circles with talented singers and dancers, including Abby Quinnen.”
Just yesterday, Maisie announced a major career move after abruptly leaving EastEnders earlier this year.
The star, who won Dancing with the Stars in 2019 along with professional dancer Gorka Marquez, will take the stage again.
Maisie is gearing up for a new lead role in Strict Ballroom: The Musical, directed by Craig Revel Horwood.
She will reunite with dancer Kevin Clifton for a stage show based on the much-loved 1992 film of the same name.
The dance duo previously performed together during a special edition of the BBC ballroom show Children In Need, as well as a live tour.
Maisie will now play the lead role of Fran in the show directed by Baz Luhrmann, while 39-year-old Kevin will take on the lead role of Scott Hastings.
This is not the first time Maisie wows fans with her sensational voice.
The red-haired bombshell, runner-up of episode eighteen of Dancing with the Stars, delivered a stunning rendition of Alicia Key’s hit Fallin’ in 2020.
Maisie could be seen applying her bronzer, singing a complex tune, captioning her shots, “That’s why my makeup always takes so long.”
Towards the end of the clip, Maisie added, “I’m a little confused.”
Just a month before, the star had recorded herself while enjoying a night of singing in her pajamas.
Maisie sang “Put Your Records On” by Corinne Bailey Ray early in the morning as she danced around the room.
And earlier this month, Maisie stunned fans yet again after she was exposed as Baby Dino in The Masked Singer.
