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
|Pelé||Meu Mundo É uma Bola||The Brazilian football legend contributed vocals to the soundtrack album for a documentary about his life. While obviously better known for his football exploits than anything else, his bossa nova performance was surprisingly well received. - Maryellen Larkin|
|Lucie Arnaz||El Cumbanchero||Lucie is not just an actress; she is also a singer and performs jazz and Latin-style songs. She also got to perform with her brother Desi Jr and their parents Desi Arnaz Sr and Lucille Ball. Lucie is also an occasional percussionist; she sometimes plays the drum while singing. - Brionna Secret|
|Joe Pesci||Wiseguy||Joe Pesci has had 3 albums and sang every song on all of them. He is also a skilled guitar player and played for Joey Dee and the Starliters during their early career. - Brionna Secret|
|Larry Hagman||My Favorite Sins, Ballad of a Good Luck Charm||He recorded these songs while he was playing J.R. Ewing on "Dallas". - Lance Crackers|
|Anne Hathaway||"I Dreamed A Dream" from "Les Miserables"||In the film version of the stage musical version of "Les Miserables," Anne Hathaway sings "I Dreamed A Dream" in character as the doomed harlot Fantine--but hers is NOT a beauty-oriented version; Fantine, mournful and bitter, sings that show-stopper with so much grief and rage that when I heard it, I was STUNNED at how PASSION-filled it was!!! That poor girl sounded as though she were surrendering her soul to her inevitable death!!! In toto, her performance was a tour de force that warns you NEVER to under-estimate Ms. Hathaway. - Parker Gabriel|
|Lisa Rinna||Fewer than she should be singing||Lisa Rinna, as a cast member of "Days Of Our Lives," initially acted out "Billie" Reed as an aspiring singer whose substance-abuse issues interfered with her career aspirations. More recently, she was one of the contestants on "Sing Your Face Off," an American attempt to bring the "Your Face Sounds Familiar" concept to the United States that, unfortunately, failed--Rinna herself ultimately lost out to Mouse-That-Bored RINGER China Anne McClain, a CLEAR indication of the FIX having evilly been IN from the FIRST!!! - Parker Gabriel|
|Chris Pine||Someday Came Today||It's from one of his lesser known movies and he's known to be a very private and shy person but it's pretty good - dayna|
|Helena Bonham Carter||Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo||The Harry Potter alumna performed "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo" for the Cinderella soundtrack, although this was only heard during the credits and not in the actual film itself. - Maryellen Larkin|
|Dwayne Johnson||You're Welcome||Besides his storied professional wrestling career as The Rock, he later became well known for his stint at acting under his real name (as WWE trademarks their talents' ring names), providing the speaking and singing voice for the demigod Maui in "Moana". - Maryellen Larkin|
|Lynda Carter||Toto, All Night Song, Take Me To The River, Crazy Little Thing Called Love||She did mostly cover tunes, but co-wrote three songs. - Sheila Oh|
|Oscar De La Hoya||Run To Me||De La Hoya is better known for his boxing career in the 2000s, though he did try his hand at a musical stint with his self-titled 2000 Latin pop album, with most of the songs in Spanish. In fairness he does sing well, though it's a shame he didn't pursue it further and focused more on what he did best. - Maryellen Larkin|
|Manny Pacquiao||Para sa 'Yo ang Laban Na Ito||Among his Barbie-level list of careers he has pursued especially during the height of his boxing career in the 2000s, Pacquiao has also tried his hand at singing, releasing several songs penned by novelty composer Lito Camo. Unlike his contemporary Oscar De La Hoya whose album was more or less well-received, Pacquiao's singing abilities were no more different than a typical Filipino beer-binger at a local karaoke pub. - Maryellen Larkin|
|Kristen Bell||Do You Want to Build a Snowman?||The star of "Veronica Mars" and "The Good Place" has a very strong soprano singing voice. In her role as the adult Anna in "Frozen", she sang the final verse of "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" - Joe Pearson|
|Kiefer Sutherland||Not Enough Whiskey, Can't Stay Away||The star of "24" has released two albums of country music. The first, "Down in a Hole", actually reached no. 35 on the Country Music chart. Sutherland has a raspy voice and does not appear to have much range. - Joe Pearson|
|Madeline Kahn||I'm Tired||The comic actress, best known for her roles in Mel Brooks films, played cabaret singer "Lilly" in "Blazing Saddles". In the show she sings "I'm Tired", which is basically a Marlene Dietrich parody. She has a good voice, but the song is played for comedic effect. - Joe Pearson|
|Rex Harrison||I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face, Talk to the Animals||British stage actor Harrison featured prominently in the musicals "My Fair Lady" (as Henry Higgins) and "Doctor Dolittle" (as the title character). Much like his compatriot, Richard Burton, he does not so much sing as "talk on pitch". - Joe Pearson|
|Richard Burton||Camelot, I Wonder What the King Is Doing Tonight||The classically trained Shakespearean actor played the role of King Arthur in the Broadway musical "Camelot". The show ran for nearly 900 performances, and the Original Cast recording topped the Billboard chart in 1961. Burton has an actor's voice, not a singer's voice. As such, he barely sings. - Joe Pearson|
|Hailee Steinfeld||Flashlight||Oscar-nominated for her role as Mattie Ross in "True Grit", Steinfeld broke into music with her song "Flashlight" from "Pitch Perfect 2". She has subsequently released a couple EPs and a handful of singles. Her voice is perfectly serviceable, but look at it this way: they got Jessie J to record the song for the subsequent soundtrack album. - Joe Pearson|
|Emily Blunt||It Takes Two, The Place Where Lost Things Go||In addition to serious acting roles ("Edge of Tomorrow", "Sicario"), Blunt has also branched out into musicals, first at the Baker's Wife in "Into the Woods" and then taking the lead role in "Mary Poppins Returns". It's hard to tell what her range is, but she certainly carries the songs she's given. - Joe Pearson|
|Anna Kendrick||Cups||Kendrick, an Academy Award nominated actress, began her career in musical theater on Broadway. Her best known song is "Cups" from "Pitch Perfect". And, of course, she voices the role of Poppy in the Trolls films. - Joe Pearson|
