We’re reaching a dangerous point where knowing that Jessica Simpson is a singer dates us and we instantly feel 50 years old. Yes, Jessica is pretty well-known for her fashion empire and television presence, but not too long ago she was a pop star, bursting with potential.
The fashion and accessories mogul has devoted most of her career to “Fashion Star,” so much so in recent years that it’s easy to forget she could belt it out like this.
In this rare video, Jessica can be seen performing a spirited solo from A Chorus Line, serving the audience her rendition of “The Music and the Mirror.”
Red camisole, high-waisted black jeans, a messy ponytail and hitting a high C (or whatever note that is at 2:52 in the video) showed she was pretty much destined for fame. Don't start polishing her Tony Award yet—it's not exactly a RIVETING performance, but it does show huge promise for a teen talent.
