Kate Hudson and 18 other actresses you probably had no idea could sing

Deirdre still can't believe SheKnows pays her to do what she loves. She began telling stories before she could even write. Once someone gave her a pen, there was no prying it away; so a degree in journalism was the only thing that made s...

You probably never realized these actresses (like Emily Blunt and Sarah Hyland!) had amazing voices — take a listen

Did you know Kate Hudson could sing? Or how about Jena Malone? We've been blown away by both actresses' talent, and it got us thinking about all the other talented ladies in Hollywood who can carry a tune. Some of these singin' celebs might surprise you, but they really shouldn't.

Sarah Hyland

Looks like someone is a triple-threat. Modern Family's Sarah Hyland teamed up with Boyce Avenue for an acoustic cover of The Chainsmokers and Halsey's "Closer" — and she can really sing. Hyland called the experience a "dream come true."

Kate Hudson

Did you know Kate Hudson's first love is music? We didn't either, but after hearing her sing, it makes total sense. During an appearance on The Tonight Show, she told host Jimmy Fallon, "I've always been scared of making music, because I like authentic [songs]. I like music that feels really honest. I love pop music."

Lucky for all of us, Hudson continues to write, and when asked by Entertainment Tonight if she has an album coming up, she paused and said: "Not that I could say, but I’m always writing." Come on, Hudson, give the people what they want!

Jena Malone

As it turns out, Saved! and Hunger Games actress Malone has been making music for almost a decade and currently spends a decent chunk of her time as the front woman for Los Angeles's The Shoe. Check out the first single off their upcoming LP, I'm Okay.

Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere

Remember when they were just Coach T's wife and "The Cheerleader"? Now, Britton is Rayna Jaymes and Panettiere is Juliette Barnes on the hit show Nashville. Their singing chops are pretty remarkable. Who could've guessed!

More: Oh, Nashville! Where will Season 2 take us?

Emily Blunt

Emily Blunt may have played one fiery chick in The Devil Wears Prada, but she actually has quite the sweet voice on her.

Allison Williams

Despite the fact that Williams has been singing for quite some time, when her Girls character, Marnie, burst out into song, viewers were stunned. We especially love her cover of "Hallelujah."
