When it comes to God-given talent, some people are just more blessed than others. For instance, as if it isn’t enough that Kate Hudson is an uh-maze-ing actress, she can also sing her little butt off. Not fair.
And Hudson isn’t the only drama queen who has a serious set of pipes. Turns out a lot of our favorite actresses can sing with the best of ’em. Check it out.
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.”
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!
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 their single “Paper Cup” off the 2014 LP I’m Okay above.
Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere
Remember when they were just Coach T’s wife and “The Cheerleader”? Now, Britton will forever be Rayna Jaymes and Panettiere is burned into our minds as Juliette Barnes on Nashville. Their singing chops are pretty remarkable.
Emily Blunt may have played one fiery chick in The Devil Wears Prada, but she actually has quite the sweet voice on her.
Despite the fact that Williams has been singing for quite some time, when her Girls character, Marnie, burst into song, viewers were stunned. We especially love her cover of “Hallelujah.”
