All too often, a celebrity gets it into their head that now they've reach some margin of fame via a movie or sports, they can also sing! This usually turns out much worse than when singers try to act.

Comments & Submittor Name
|Blake Sennett||Not Going Home||Blake was an actor (with his notable roles including Pinsky from Salute Your Shorts), and "Not Going Home" is from his band The Elected, in which he's the lead singer. He also played guitar on Rilo Kiley. - Archie|
|Jenny Lewis||Portions for Foxes||Jenny Lewis was from Troop Beverly Hills and The Wizard, and "Portions for Foxes" was by her band Rilo Kiley. - Archie|
|Manny Pacquiao||Various||Popularised a bunch of singles in Tagalog which were released during 2005-2006. Also did a bunch of live performances in late-night talk shows in the States, but in both cases, his voice is enough for us to suggest that he should stick to boxing. - Felicity Merriman|
|Jerry Lewis||Rock-a-bye Your Baby With A Dixie Melody||Jerry sang a whole LP of old chestnuts for Decca in the late 50's; it sounds pretty much like a 33 rpm Al Jolson record played at 45. HEY, LAAAAAA-DEEEEE!! - JeffM|
|Bronson Arroyo||various covers of songs like Slide, Hunger Strike and Dirty Water||Arroyo was a member of the 2004 Boston Red Sox team that won the World Series and recorded the album "Covering the Bases" in 2005. Arroyo had teammates Kevin Millar, Johnny Damon and Kevin Youkilis record background vocals on his cover of "Dirty Water". Arroyo had Michael Landau and Mike Inez record on the album. - harderman|
|Mark Smith||My Blue Escape||Smith was a forward for the NHL's San Jose Sharks in the 2000's and formed the group upon settling in the Silicon Valley region. - harderman|
|Robert Downey Jr.||The album The Futurist||Has a very good voice. Smooth and soothing. I recommend. - Nathan|
|Bette Davis||"Miss Bette Davis" Album||The classic actress released an album of her singing. - Rick O'Shea|
|Steve Coogan||Goldfinger, Nobody Does It Better (as Alan Partridge in 'I'm Alan Partridge')||I can't hear the original of Nobody Does It Better without thinking of Alan Partridge explaining the opening titles of The Spy Who Loved Me! - pickle|
|Rob Brydon||The Winner Takes It All, Delilah, Wuthering Heights (on 'The Trip')||Rob and Steve Coogan's version of The Winner Takes It All is miles better than Meryl Streep's attempt in the film of 'Mamma Mia'! - pickle|
|Mel Blanc||Toot-Toot-Tootsie||"The Man of a Thousand Voices" could sing in all of them. Most of his records were comedy-oriented, and some of them still hold up pretty well today. - Jeff Missinne|
|Yvonne De Carlo||Little Girl Blue||"Lily Munster's" voice had a sultry tone to match her looks, but her over-pronounced diction sometimes made her sound like Dudley Do-Right's girlfriend. - Jeff Missinne|
|Abigail Breslin||Hurricane||Abbie seems to have done a 'swell job at rocking on, although I more or less associate her with her roles in 'Kit Kittredge' and of course 'Little Miss Sunshine'. - LPG-Unit|
|Alison Brie||Several cover tunes||The Community cast member who sings cover tunes with two other actresses, calling themselves The Girls. - Opie M.|
|Larry Bagby III||Counting My Lucky Stars||The gay football player from Buffy turned out to be... a country singer. - Mitchell|
|Donald Glover||Let Me Dope You, All of the Lights (remix)||Glover is a writer for 30 Rock and a stand-up comedian. He raps under the name "Childish Gambino" - JeReMy|
|Danny John-Jules||Tongue Tied||Danny John Jules is one of two characters to always be in Red Dwarf, the sci-fi sitcom which began in 1988. In the show he played Cat. In 1993, in character as Cat, he released the single "Tongue Tied" though he wasn't great at singing, so it would of been more dangerous if released under his own name. Regardless, the character is classic. - Lee|
|Laura Marano||Words||Practically every female starlet on The Disney Channel has an additional musical career, but before joining the cast of Austin & Ally, Miss Marano co-wrote some songs with Peter Waldman, and appeared in one music video for the song "Words," where the boyfriend looked a lot like her current co-star Ross Lynch. Her voice is kind of weak in this one, but the song is still catchy, and from her performance in the A&A episode "Deejays & Demos," it's clear she's not an entirely incompetent singer. - The Skuz|
|Lucy Lawless||Several albums she has released||Though "Celebrity Duets" was not QUITE successful enough to merit another go-around, it did revive the musical career of Lucille Frances Ryan-Lawless, better known for the title role of "Xena, Warrior Princess." For she made it all the way to the last round, BARELY losing out to Alfonso Ribeiro, the former "Tap-Dance Kid" of Broadway. And her materiel is good enough for her to merit the nickname "Flawless Diva." Indeed, she actually sang in some installments of "Xena, Warrior Princess!" For in addition to contributing the dirge "Burial" to the show's soundtrack, she was one of the cast members, in the installments "The Bitter Suite" and "Lyre, Lyre, Heart's On Fire," who did their own singing. Members of this site should check her out sometime! She is THAT good. - Parker Gabriel|
|Richard Chamberlain||"Three Stars Will Shine Tonight" (The Theme From "Dr. Kildare")||Mr. Chamberlain was the lead cast member of the late 1950s-early 1960s medical drama "Dr. Kildare," acting out the lead role of Dr. James Kildare M.D. The program's theme had lyrics written for it, and though I'm not about to judge the quality of Mr. Chamberlain's voice, his performance of "Three Stars Will Shine Tonight" actually charted. Can you believe that? - Parker Gabriel|
