Anabel Englund Remembers How Grandmother Cloris Leachman Pushed Her Out Of Her ‘Comfort Zone’ Musically

Anabel Englund is a rising star in the music industry and dropped her first album, “Messing with Magic,” last year. The songstress counts the late Cloris Leachman as her grandmother and told Access Hollywood’s Sibley Scoles in her latest “Sibley’s Spotlight” that the acting icon was one of her biggest fans. “The thing she helped me so much with was to tell me – She was just like, ‘You sing!'” Anabel said. “I always sang really quietly and softly. I was always really shy. She would push me out of my comfort zone so much. People have heard me sing that wouldn’t have if she hadn’t told me too, so I owe a lot of who I am to her.”
