Zooey Deschanel Singing

It’s not news that some of our favorite actors are good at more than one thing; most successful people are. While you may expect that most actors would have at least some singing ability, you’d be surprised by how many have pretty phenomenal voices. Here are six TV and film stars who are also pretty great singers and musicians.

 

Jeff Bridges

In Crazy Heart, Bridges played a country music singer (and won an Academy Award for it). In real life, Bridges is actually a country music singer; proof below.

 

Kristen Bell

Whether you have kids or not, you’ve probably heard every song from Disney’s Frozen, and you might already know that Kristen Bell provided the voice of Anna. Hear Kristen Bell sing “Love is an Open Door” below.

 

Zooey Deschanel

Most of us know that Zooey has a voice from her cotton commercials, but did you know she’s also in an Indie band called She & Him?

A note for the holidays: if you liked her rendition of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” in the movie Elf, you’ll love She & Him’s fun version of it from the album A Very She & Him Christmas, which has plenty of other Christmas favorites, too.

 

Anna Kendrick

That voice you’ve heard in Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2 is real. So are the crazy cup stacking skills.

 

Harry Connick Jr.

My favorite Harry Connick Jr. movie is Hope Floats with Sandra Bullock. My favorite Harry Connick Jr. song is: all of them.

 

Emily Kinney

Kinney played the beloved Beth Greene on AMC’s The Walking Dead. The show also featured some of her music, which can be found on the official soundtrack.
