7 Celebs That Also Have Successful Music Careers

By  | 


Once someone gets bitten by the acting bug, they usually have to sample the fashion bug, the perfume bug and of course, the singing bug! Some celebrities get into music and do extremely well. Others, well, they simply flop. But hey, having a great acting career is something, right? Let’s take a look at some of those who did hit it big in music!

Toni Braxton

Toni Braxton has always been on the map in one way or another, but as an actress (both as a true actor and a reality star) she is just as famous as she is for her angelic voice. Haven’t caught her in anything on TV? Check out Twist of Faith for her most uplifting role yet!




Gwyneth Paltrow

This beautiful actress who has graced the big screen with her amazing talent, hit pay dirt when she tried out her pipes in the professional music scene. Her thing is typically country music, but she has gone in a few different directions – all successfully.

Reba McEntire

While this fiery redhead did things backwards, the fact still remains that she is both the queen of country music, as well as a hit on television. It just so happens that her music career came first. Either way, she’s a massive success!

Jamie Foxx

This is one fox you can catch in the movies and on stage! Jamie Foxx has been a well-known actor for quite some time now, hailed for his performance in the movie “Ray” in which he played the part of Ray Charles”. However, once Kayne West took him on in his hit song, “Gold Digger”, Foxx has a successful music career all his own.

Jennifer Lopez

Contrary to what you may believe, Lopez did not get recognized for her singing voice first. As a young woman she was but a mere fly girl on the old but popular show, In Living Color. And who doesn’t love her performance as Selena? Either way, it was her voice that really took her places, and continues to do so.

Kevin Bacon

Kevin Bacon and The Bacon Brothers may not be a well-known success story, but they have been rocking for many years .Their specialty now is twangy country music. And of course we can still catch the steamy baconator on his excellent movies!



Ryan Gosling

Although many people aren’t aware that this smoking hot stud is also the lead singer in the successful band “Dead Man’s Bones”, he has been rocking out since 2008. It really shouldn’t be too surprising though. He had his childhood debut on the Mickey Mouse Club with Justin Timberlake and Britany Spears!
