Can The Rock Really Sing? ‘Moana’ Showcases Yet Another One Of Dwayne Johnson’s Talents
*Spins around in desk chair.* *Adjusts glasses.* *Hits pause on a clip of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson performing a rousing rendition of "You Send Me" by Sam Cooke.* Why, hello. Didn't see you there. But hey, now that you are here, how would you feel about enjoying a few classic videos of The Rock singing? Oh, forgive me. That is a ridiculous question. Of course, you want to watch some videos of The Rock singing. You would have to be a real jabroni to pass on clips of Johnson belting it out.
If "You're Welcome" from Disney's Moana happens to be the first time you've witnessed Johnson’s musical side, welcome to the party. The WWE icon who was once dubbed the "Most Electrifying Man in All of Entertainment" is no stranger to warbling in front of a camera, whether it be shortly before hitting the People's Elbow in the ring, on a late-night talk show, or in a sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth. In addition to being one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, an outstanding comedic actor, a larger-than-life action star, and People’s Sexiest Man Alive of 2016, Johnson also can carry a tune. Some people just have all the talent, eh?
Ready to smell what The Rock is crooning? Let's dive in.
“You’re Welcome” From Moana
The Moana soundtrack, which was co-written by literal genius Lin-Manuel Miranda, happens to include a song performed by Johnson's character, Maui. Unsurprisingly, it is perfection.
“What A Wonderful World” In Journey 2: The Mysterious Island
“You Send Me” On The Jay Leno Show
Literally Any Of His Wrestling Songs
One of The Rock’s recurring wrestling bits involved lugging a guitar out into the ring and singing a song about his opponent. This particular ditty for Stone Cold Steve Austin features some NSFW language, so uh, maybe save it for when you’re out of the office.
“Here Comes Santa Claus” On Live With Kelly & Michael
All I want for Christmas is a The Rock Christmas album.
“The Wind Beneath My Wings” In The Tooth Fairy
If I had wings, this bonus karaoke scene would certainly be the wind beneath 'em.
Anyone who doesn't appreciate The Rock's musical stylings belongs on Chris Jericho's list.
