It’s been some time since the High School Musical cast reunited for The Disney Family Sing-Along special. However, we don’t think the cast is over it just yet. Particularly Vanessa Hudgens.
Once a wildcat, always a wildcat. And Vanessa just proved that by successfully belting out all the lyrics to the HSM duet, ‘Breaking Free.’ She performed this song in the movie with her former co-star and ex, Zac Efron. However, she happily sang the duet in her car and posted the clip to her Instagram, captioning it, ‘Careoke. To… yep… breaking free. Lol.’

Is Vanessa Trying To Make Up For Zac’s Absence?
We think this might be to make up for Zac Efron’s absence at the High Sschool Musical reunion. All the cast members had virtually gotten together for HSM’s iconic, “We’re All In This Together.” This was to uplift the spirits of people as they social distance and put their lives on hold. However, Zac Efron wasn’t a part of the reunion and it turned out he couldn’t be reached until late. But he still wanted to be a part of it so he decided to send a video message for all his fans welcoming his former co-stars.
Vanessa doesn’t seem to mind that Zac was missing as we can see her dancing along to the song. She couldn’t help but channel her inner Gabriella Montez, almost 14 years later. And for all the High School Musical fans out there, myself included, it was a treat!
But it wasn’t just the fans that got excited. Director of the HSM movies couldn’t help but appreciate Vanessa for her positivity in these troubled times.
He commented on the post saying, “Vanessa, You exude love and good spirit in all you do! You are effervescent and light up the world with your voice and your smile!!!”
