Apparently the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center’s annual event, “An Evening with Women,” was the place to be if you were looking to be blown away by actresses you didn’t know could sing.
Some context: “An Evening with Women” is a dinner and show that raises funds for all services provided to women by the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center. It’s been happening since 2002.
Margaret Cho was this year’s host.
We’ll quickly point out that the attendees this year looked fierce. For instance, DJ Ruby Rose:
Who gave us an inside view of what was happening on stage. Most notably, random celebrities getting behind the mic and belting their lungs off like, WUT.
There was Evan Rachel Wood…
Who gave a seriously knockout performance of Radiohead’s “High and Dry.”
Your reaction: WHO KNEW?!
Then there was Milla Jovovich…
Who rocked her way through a Patti Smith cover.
Your reaction: WHAAAAAAT?!
Then there was Rumer Willis…
Who gave a soulful rendition of Lesley Gore’s “You Don’t Own Me.”
Your reaction: WOWWWOWOW!
These videos got us thinking about other actresses we had no idea were so vocally talented—like Leighton Meester.
Your reaction: BLAIR CAN SING?!!
Your reaction: AND PLAY GUITARRWHAT?!
Also see Kristen Bell, who no one knew could sing this well until Frozen.
Your reaction: WHAT THE HELL WE DID NOT KNOW THIS!
