As if we needed another reason to love Anna Kendrick! The ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ star sang a sweet rendition of Chance the Rapper’s ‘Sunday Candy’ during an interview with ABC. Not only did she knock it out of the park, but we want to hear more! Watch the video here.
Anna Kendrick, 29, was a guest on ABC’s Popcorn With Peter Travers on May 29, and when the film critic asked her to sing a song at the end of their interview, she more than obliged! The actress told Peter Travers that she had a song stuck in her head for awhile that she wanted to try out, and it was Chance the Rapper‘s “Sunday Candy.” Watch her perform it in the video here!
“There’s a song — it’s the only song that’s in my head — I don’t know the woman who does the hook of the song, but it’s a song [by] Chance the Rapper, and I don’t know the woman singing the hook, but I just love her voice,” Anna said.
The singer is Jamila Wood, and her voice is just stunning. We think Anna definitely did her justice when launching into her brief rendition of the song. Anna sang sweetly and confidently — just like her usual self. “Isn’t that sweet? It’s beautiful,” she said to Peter about “Sunday Candy,” when she finished singing. (Watch the video above!)
Peter completely agreed — and he’ll never mess with her again! Before asking her to sing, he teased her by bringing out a plastic cup and placing it on the table. The look of horror on her face was enough to let anyone know that Anna’s never singing “Cups” ever again.
And Anna had no qualms about teasing him back: “I’m a grown-ass woman,” she said, laughing. “I’ll cut you. I’ll cut you with a smile on my face.” Tell him how you really feel, Anna!
