Jennifer Lawrence Sings With Letterman, Shows Off Her ‘Tone-Deaf Amy Winehouse’ Voice

Jennifer Lawrence is an acting extraordinaire… singing, not so much!

The 24-year-old Oscar winner has revealed that she hates her singing voice, something she refers to as a “tone-deaf Amy Winehouse,” despite the fact that she’s singing in the upcoming “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1.”

“I do not like singing in front of other people. It’s like, my biggest fear. I cried on set that day,” she told David Letterman.

We have Jennifer’s mom to thank for the actress singing in public.

“I have a Southern mother that used to tell me I was amazing at everything and I could do everything, but I can’t,” she explained. “I had this tone-deaf Amy-Winehouse voice and I sang in front of the school when I was 8, because I thought I could… My dad laughed for the entire week! I’d hear him around the house, imitating me. I hate it, I hate it!”

The actress, who is not sure if her vocals are actually heard singing “The Hanging Tree” in the movie, had someone else in mind when it came to performing in the latest installment in “The Hunger Games” franchise.
