Before he became Shazam, Zachary Levi was also the handsome thief Flynn Rider in the 2010 Disney film Tangled. In a recent interview, the actor channeled the beloved character again.

A Korean interviewer, who happens to be a fan of Tangled, asked Levi if he could sing a bit of " I See The Light," one of the two songs he recorded for the movie with Mandy Moore, who played Rapunzel. Thankfully, he gave in to the request, and as you would expect, he did not disappoint.

While he forgot some lyrics, the interviewer cried upon hearing Levi sing the song again. In fact, you can see Asher Angel and Jack Dylan Grazer's adorable reactions as the two couldn't help but be in awe of Levi's voice. Look at how their faces change when the actor started to sing. Watch the video below.

Humor: Zachary Levi makes interviewer cry with his beautiful voice

The romantic song was played during the part of the movie where Flynn and Rapunzel start to fall in love. They were on a boat watching all the sky lanterns float over the kingdom.

This reminded fans of how good Tangled was. Even though a lot of viewers seem to be very happy with the film and his performance, Levi admitted in a 2014 interview that he thought that his singing sounded "incredibly nasally" after watching the finished film.

The official synopsis for Shazam! reads:

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson's (Asher Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard (Djimon Hounsou). Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he'll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong).

Shazam! hits the cinemas April 6.
