WATCH: Wait, Kerry Washington Can Sing, Too?!

Kerry Washington has already shown us her acting chops (she earned an Emmy nomination this year for her role on Scandal), but it turns out this girl is a double threat! During a backstage interview with Jordin Sparks at the Teen Choice Awards, the 36-year-old proved that she’s also got some pipes.

After finding out that Kerry likes to sing Disney songs at karaoke, Jordin convinced the actress to duet with her on Aladdin’s “A Whole New World.” Although she was nervous at first, Kerry sang along and surprised her interviewer.

“Yes, girl! Do you hear this?!” Jordin exclaimed after a few notes. Hmm…this newfound talent could mean a whole new array of roles for Kerry — next up: a musical, perhaps? Check out the video right here:
