Emmy Rossum showed off her serious musical skills in a video she posted to Facebook on Friday.
The 28-year-old Golden Globe nominee shared a stunning cover of “Stand by Me” as a tribute to Ben E. King who died of natural causes on Thursday.
Rossum’s bare-bones version of the song (just her and a piano) is hauntingly beautiful and oh-so-brief but it’s made quite the impression on fans.
Accolades (in the comments, duh) range from “Can we get Married like now!!!” to “Emmy, darn it, you made this old girl cry.” to “Had ZERO clue you could sing so lovely!”
Not everyone is surprised Rossum can sing. She starred in 2004’s Phantom of the Opera opposite Gerard Butler and has released two albums.
Funny girls Emmy Rossum and Ellie Kemper have big plans for this year’s Met Gala.
“We’re going to be eating ice cream and looking at Getty Images together,” Rossum, star of Shameless, tells Threads. “There are rumors of possibly drinking a 40,” she adds. “That sounds nice,” chimes in Kemper, who stars in Tina Fey’s hit Netflix show, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
Emmy Rossum, Kristin Chenoweth And Ava Duvernay Have Been Turned Into Living Dolls By Barbie Artists At Toy Firm Mattel.
The Hollywood trio was among the six “inspirational power females” honoured at Variety’s Power of Women Luncheon in New York City on Friday (April 24), and as part of the celebration, they were presented with custom-made Barbie dolls created in their likenesses.
Lucky magazine editor Eva Chen, country singer Trisha Yearwood and five-year-old fashion designer Sydney ‘Mayhem’ Keiser also picked up dolls, which have been auctioned off to benefit the celebrities’ favourite charities.
Emmy Rossum addressed the Internet chatter surrounding the actress potentially starring in the Broadway adaptation of the 1990 rom-com on the Late Late Show with James Corden on Wednesday night.
“This is the first time the Internet has been nice to anyone. This is fabulous,” the Shameless actress, 28, joked when host James Corden asked if she had heard the fan speculation brewing on the Web.
“Yeah, that would be amazing!” Rossum exclaimed about the idea of possibly reprising Julia Roberts’s scrappy leading lady Vivian.
“What would the lyrics and the songs for that show be?” Rossum wondered in the clip. She then proceeded to improvise a peppy tune to fit the prostitute-meets-billionaire love story.
“I could be a hooker with a heart of gold … ” she sang (and quite impressively!).
“I’m a guy who loves you but I’m way too old,” Corden, 36, chimed in to finish out the verse.
“I’m a whore!” Rossum belted as she brought it on home with some lengthy falsetto.
But Rossum is no stranger to singing roles. She showed off her voice when she starred as Christine in the 2004 film version of The Phantom of the Opera opposite Gerard Butler.
She would be a Broadway newbie, but Rossum is totally open to the role, she said. And maybe her new singing buddy could teach her a few things. (Corden has been on Broadway twice.)
“You would have to school me,” she told the host.
