Listen and Guess Game - Actors Who Sing!

There are a lot of actors who are equally well known as singers ( e.g. Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Marlene Dietrich ), but there are also a surprising number of actors who it would astonish you to find out recorded an album... or at least a single ( e.g. Rock Hudson, Cheryl Ladd ). Over the years, my sister and I have come to discover ten or fifteen actors that are not known as singers but have a really nice singing voice regardless. While doing some research for a blog post on this topic, the number we discovered grew to over fifty actors! 

In a couple of weeks, we will share this post with you but, in the meantime, we thought it would be fun to make a game of identifying the actor who is singing. Below you will find ten sound clips featuring famous actors singing. Test your knowledge of voice recognition and see if you can name the star who is singing!

The first five sound clips feature the voices of actors/actresses who are best known for making films. They may have appeared on television, too, but they are primarily film stars. The last five sound clips feature the voices of actors/actresses who are best known for their television work. 

If you can guess 5 out of 10, pat yourself on the back, because these are tricky!

P.S: Hover your mouse slightly to the right of the play button in order to click on it ( the same goes with pausing ). Play button not working? Then click on the pop-out tab to download. Need a hint? Scroll down a bit and on the right column of this blog you will see two picture gadgets with the faces of all ten actors on it.

  1. Can't get the players to load except for the first one, and I know who is singing.

    1. Thanks for letting me know! They should all be working now, I tested it on an incognito window. Didn't realize Google Drive sets all files to "restricted"!

  2. Same for me.. only the first one pops out and lets me play. But this is super cool. I love stuff like this!

    1. If you hover your mouse right over the little point on the play button it should work without having to pop out the window. If not, let me know! Enjoy the game!

  3. This is so fun! I think I can guess 1 & 2 (the center photos for your pictures?) but none of the others sound familiar. I loved listening to each of them! They are all so good!
