Unexpected Dreams CD Giveaway

The Unexpected Dreams: Songs from the Stars CD was released today, featuring some of my favorite actors lending their voice talents. Whenever actors sing (or try to sing), it completely intrigues me and this new album is no exception! It’s obviously not the best singing in the world, but it’s sure fun to listen to.  The CD features 14 spellbinding tunes by composers including Elton John, Billy Joel, Sade, Bob Dylan, and Lennon/McCartney, beautifully sung (well, sometimes) and lushly orchestrated.  A portion of the proceeds will benefit “Music Matters,” the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s music education programs.  Here’s the Unexpected Dreams tracklisting –

  • Scarlett Johansson – “Summertime” (George & Ira Gershwin)
  • Ewan McGregor – “The Sweetest Gift” (Sade)
  • Taraji P. Henson – “In My Daughter’s Eyes” (James T. Slater)
  • Jennifer Garner – “My Heart Is So Full of You” (Frank Loesser)
  • Jeremy Irons – “To Make You Feel My Love” (Bob Dylan)
  • John Stamos – “Goodnight My Angel” (Billy Joel)
  • Lucy Lawless – “Little Child” (Eric Vetro/Alan Rich)
  • Marissa Jaret Winokur – “The Wish Song” (Eric Vetro/Steven Shore)
  • Eric McCormack – “The Greatest Discovery” (Elton John/Bernie Taupin)
  • Victor Garber – “No One Is Alone” (Stephen Sondheim)
  • Julia Louis-Dreyfus – “The Nightshift” (Brad Hall)
  • Nia Vardalos – “Golden Slumbers” (John Lennon/Paul McCartney)
  • John C. Reilly – “Lullaby In Ragtime” (Sylvia Fine)
  • Teri Hatcher – “Goodnight” (John Lennon/Paul McCartney)

I had no idea of this project but I think it’s something great, actors and actresses have sung before and some of them with great success like Nicole Kidman and her duet with Robbie Williams ‘Something Stupid’ or Rupert Everett singing vocals for Madonna’s ‘American Pie’ to name a few…it’s great and the gift of give is always worthy :)

I love these kind of projects. I remember Jen Garner singing in Alias.

These are always interesting. Sometimes the ones you think will be good are terrible, and vice versa. Sounds like fun!

I enjoyed Ewan’s cover of "Your Song" and I remember Garner singing in "Alias" and on Rosie with the cast of "Time of Your Life."

I first heard ScoJo sing on SNL and thought she was good! "Liiiiiive Duluth!" Oh please let me win this!!!

ScarJo, I mean. Gaaaaaarrrrrr!!!

This is so cool!!! I wonder why I hadn’t heard of it before. I’m so beind hehe. I want to hear Scarlett sing so bad!

I’d love to hear it – I’d love to win it! Thanks for the chance.
