Vanessa Hudgens Sings Beyonce's 'I Was Here' - Watch Now!

Vanessa Hudgens strikes a pose while posing backstage at the Point Foundation’s Voices On Point Gala held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza on Saturday evening (September 13) in Los Angeles.

The 25-year-old actress hit the stage during the show to perform Beyonce‘s hit song “I Was Here” for the crowd. Diane Warren, who wrote the song, was honored at the event with the Point Leadership Award.

Vanessa will soon be showing off her vocal talents in the Broadway bound revival of the musical Gigi, which will have an out-of-town tryout production at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. this January.

FYI: Vanessa is wearing Graziela Gems earrings and ring, and a Casato hand cuff.

    Wow. She must be paying this blogger for the hourly updates.

  • http://@llucasdanilo Lucas

    I prefer Ashley Tisdale, but Vanessa is so pretty!!!

  • Whatever!!!

    @Kerry Louise: EXACTLY. It’s beyond obvious at this point. HOdgens gets more press here than any other star which makes NO SENSE.

  • bey

    Wasn’t it two days ago her boyfriends mother died? Is she grieving publicly. Why wouldn’t she cancel n stay with her boyfriend? I mean the funeral Hasn’t happened even.

  • Allie

    Im sorry but her singing is horrible. She can’t hit high notes at all. She should stick to songs that don’t have that range. I’m embarrassed for her.


    @bey: your naïveté and ignorance astounds me. Life goes on or as the saying goes, the show must go on, me dear. If you but take the time to read the headline and its content, she was doing a performance and for a very good cause. She had a commitment to keep and a responsibility to see it through.
    And Nightwish or whatever!!!! , please keep your trap shut for once. You did on a previous thread and you can do it again. Have some human decency.

  • Lily

    @bey: He is there

    @EpsteinJeffrey:Broadway bound @VanessaHudgens & super-sweet @austinbutler at #VoicesOnPoint @PointFoundation

    Three adjectives to describe Vanessa Hudgens? Beautiful, talented and generous. She has a good vocal range and she did an excellent performance with Beyoncè’s song. I remember when they sang together at Oscar and Beyoncè was very surprised by her voice.

  • Ha

    Her singing is awful. She’s lucky to be pretty….. I see that as the only reason why she still gets stuff to do!

  • Selma

    She was so beautiful and she sings very well
    @BOHJI: Thank you ! You’re totally right :)

  • http://justjared Charlie

    Nessa sang very well in this video and I am sure that she will do a great job on Broadway.

  • mike

    Okay, age is catching up with her on her voice, she sounded off. but dam, she is still gorgeous.

  • gypsie

    @Ha: Huuuh??? Pretty??? Where do you live?

  • Ha

    @gypsie: Hahahaha I live in Paris =) ….well I don’t find her pretty or beautiful or whatever at all but I mean, by a lot of people’s standards it SEEMS like she’s considered “beautiful”…. don’t judge me, I don’t get the hype either.

  • gypsie

    @Ha: Then why do you agree with them? Have you a non personality disorder?

  • ignored

    She has such a pretty voice. I’m damned jealous.

  • Amelie

    i have nothing against this girl personally – she seems perfectly pleasant & inoffensive in comparison to a lot of other hollywood starlets. she was obviously contractually obliged to perform at this event before the death of her boyfriend’s mother & so did not want to let anyone down by not attending.

    all that being said – she clearly has a limited vocal range & was way out of her depth with this song. towards the end she was really struggling & she sounded like a cat being strangled. i don’t think that she has the voice of acting skills required to pull off an iconic role like gigi onstage & worry that she’ll probably make it into some comical parody.

  • xoxo

    I love her when she laughs… It’s so feminine lol

  • Kayla

    @Kerry Louise: actually she doesn’t pay, and@Whatever!!!: effratic gets more coverage including the oh so HOt pics, Selena gets more coverage, difference tonight, is that Vanessa was in a gala

  • Kayla

    @bey: it was, but Austin was at the event too, they can grieve different ways, compromises must be accomplished, so it’s all good

  • freya

    I give props to Vanessa for trying. I also like her outfit.

  • Amoore

    A big song to pull of only Beyonce,Mariah Carey,Celine Dion,Leona Lewis,Jennifer Hudson or Christina Aguliera can really blow you away if they sang it ,Vanessa came pretty close :) She is a really good singer but she should of chosen a different song.

  • mel

    She’s an excellent singer , she is amazing live ! cannot wait for future music !!!

  • lore

    Her singing its amazing

  • Listen to

    Just terrible. Throw in the towel on singing.

  • lore

    @Whatever!!!: yes Vanessa posted those pics and videos in the middle of the even smh. Can you just stop the hate?

  • amy

    Haters commenting under different names. Can’t you see how pathetic y’all are? She did it AMAZING you’re just jealous of her. You hate on her behind a computer while she’s living in a 5 million dollars mansion doing everything you can’t

  • amy

    I’m happy Austin went to support her

  • Tom


  • M

    She is not a good singer. She should start acting again and skip singing. Her dress is cute. You should be with big lips not doing this.



  • Nothing but the truth

    Yeah, NOOOOOOOOO. But as good as a voice as Taylor Swifts and Katy perry.

  • Kar

    Austn mom just died and hours later he goes to an event?

  • kami

    no one can sing that song like beyonce, but vanessa did a good job. wish the video showed her singing the first part and not just the high note chorus of the song.

  • don

    people who say she’s an amazing singer are the ones who listen to justin bieber and miley cirus

  • K

    That was horrible. She was so off key during the high notes in the first video. Lord that was horrendous.

  • mett

    that sounded terrible! and I love her. Hopefully Gigi is better I live in Manhattan I will totally check out the show

  • mett

    The second video was much much better she should stick to a lower register

  • ame

    pull it up on youtube it’s much better when you hear it from beginning to end. It’s still not the full video but it’s better than this

  • tina

    She sounds great . I guess if you prefer these young singers who scream rather than sing you wouldn’t find real singing to your taste. She looks great. Don’t pretend to know how someone else grieves their love ones, it’s a private thing. To each his own.

  • sobad

    OMG! She still can’t sing. There goes that Gigi in the show

  • Cate

    She is searching hard for this high notes and not finding them. Hope she’s better on Broadway.

  • Whatever!!!

    @BOHJI: I love when an ugly girl like you who is so bottom heavy and hasn’t had a date outside of daddy taking you to SIZZLER comes here to whine and cry about people who dog HOdgens. Based upon that video clip, her signing is AWFUL and yes, this website puts her up hourly. I love that you think because the Daily Mail puts her in its gossip columns that it means she’s worthy. It means she WORTHLESS. The Daily Mail is not a respected publication so wake up you clueless tool.

  • Shocked

    Wow. This girl just does not have any COOTH. Contracts are not binding in the case of death or work in Hollywood. I’m amazed she chose to go. Who is guiding this girl? Does she NEED exposure this much over perhaps “appearing” to care and cancel? The public would take her as kind hearted to cancel. But the bodies not cold yet or buried! Her singing is off and her eyes are not swollen. Not a tear was shed. Most would think of their dead “mom” and cry. Not this one. Not a tear. Her priorities are apparent. Her team on here making excuses for her flavorless choices is a joke at this point. She’s tacky.

  • zacfan

    to all the haters: eat your heart out. vanessa you go girl – superb! lol i found it amusing but even taylor swift cracks during a live performance. vanessa is simply amazing.

  • Haters Suck!

    You do realize austin is there with her right? Don’t be ignorant.

  • Whatever!!!

    @Shocked: This flat nosed midget wouldn’t miss a photo opp – you are correct in your assessment.

  • tina

    @Shocked: No one can tell someone else how to mourn a loved ones death. My father died after years of a debilitating illness. We had cried and laugh through years of up and down turns. Some ignorant idiot had the nerve to say we weren’t crying enough for them at his funereal. First it’s not a show for them or you to grade. Maybe, just maybe after dealing with the pain of an illness where you have done everything possible for your love one and they have finally succumbed, you feel they have earned peace. Nothing p*sses me off more than a sanctimonious twit judging from the outside. Austin was there if he thought it was appropriate to attend, who are you to bring your phony unsolicited opinion? For all you know his mother knowing she was dying may have requested they attend. Never pretend you know another’s grief.

  • Ignorant people here

    Lori died of cancer. They were prepared for her death!
