Johnathan Taylor Thomas played Simba in The Lion King, but do you know if he actually sang the songs in the movie or did someone else do the singing?

I looked it up on imdb.com, the best place to look up info about movies. No JTT did not sing the songs himself. As a general rule, people who provide vocal talent for Disney movies do not do their own singing. They almost always have a voice double for the singing.

Jonathan Taylor Thomas didn't sing as Simba in The Lion King. The guy who did provide the singing voice of Simba is Jason Weaver. I know he was in some TV series, but I'm not sure which one. He's got a good voice, I think. To be honest, I thought for the longest time JTT did sing as Simba. It wasn't until about 1999 that I figured it out, haha.
