These celebs discovered talent at a young age... in their school choir.
Putting a twist on the normal school choir, Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively sang in her school ‘show’ choir. We hope there were jazz hands involved.
It’s no surprise that Anne Hathaway was in her school choir – her rendition of 'I Dreamed a Dream' in the Les Misérables film still gives us goosebumps. But did you know that she was an award-winning singer and performed at Carnegie Hall before she graduated high school?
Is there anything this man can’t do? Apparently not.
Barack Obama was a member of his high school choir and is rumoured to have a fantastic singing voice.
OK, you could probably guess this one. Hugh Jackman has gone on from his school choir to be the leading man on Broadway and the big screen, most recently The Greatest Showman.
Queen Latifah shone bright when she was still at school. She played basketball, performed in the school musicals and sang in the choir.
Tina Fey was another avid member of her school choir. She dabbled in sports too and was a member of the school tennis team.
Would you believe that Shakira was actually thrown out of her school choir as her teacher ‘didn’t like her vibrato’? In hindsight probably not their finest teaching moment...
