Some actors are all-rounders and have an impressive set of vocal cords on top of their acting ability.
And when it comes to making albums, those stars of the silver screen can’t resist Christmas music.
Here are our top picks of well-known Hollywood faces who recorded some memorable Christmas classics, original festive tunes or had a Christmas no. 1 hit!
1. Kate Winslet
Kate climbed to the top of the Irish Christmas charts with her hit song What If in 2001. It was recorded for the animated film Christmas Carol: The Movie.
2. Harry Connick Jr.
Harry is as well known for his music as he is for his acting but he still deserves a place in this list for his gorgeous version of When My Heart Finds Christmas. Frank Sinatra, eat your heart out!
3. Zooey Deschanel
Zooey is a massive fan of singing and music – as anyone familiar with her series New Girl will know! We love this version of What are you doing New Year’s Eve? with her pal and 500 Days of Summer co-star Joseph-Gordon Levitt.
Here she is again singing Baby, It’s Cold Outside with Will Ferrell from the movie Elf.
4. Bill Nighy
It might have been as part of the film Love Actually, but we don’t care. Christmas Is All Around is a classic as far as we’re concerned!
5. Anna Kendrick
Did you know that Anna Kendrick started her acting career in musical theatre? You won’t be surprised after you listen to her stunning versions of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas and Silent Night.
6. Kristen Bell
We loved her singing voice in Frozen but Kristen Bell divided opinion when she recorded Text Me Merry Christmas with Straight No Chaser a few years ago!
7. Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta
Their Christmas received mixed reviews from critics but we say fair play to the stars of Grease for getting together and making a festive album!
8. William Shatner
How have we never heard this version of Good King Wencelas narrated by the iconic actor William Shatner before?
We’re not entirely sure why but we think it’s amazing!
