Anna Kendrick Sings About Destiny's Child, Compares Herself to Michelle Williams
Anna Kendrick proved she's a talented singer in 2012's musical comedy Pitch Perfect, and now she's showing off her lyrical abilities in the July 26 episode of IFC's Comedy Bang! Bang! In a sneak preview from the show, the Oscar-nominated star, 27, performs a completely improvised song about Destiny's Child with the show's band leader, Reggie Watts.
"I feel like if I were in Destiny's Child, I'd be Michelle," she sings of Williams, who joined the group in 2000. "She caught a lot of air at the Super Bowl. She looked like she didn't expect it." (The "Bootylicious" singers joined forces during Beyonce Knowles' Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show on Feb. 3, 2013.)
With Watts manning the turntables, Kendrick continues to sing about the musical trio. "I feel like if I were in Destiny's Child, I'd be Michelle. Most people wouldn't call her their favorite," she sings. "But it's pretty cool how they always give her the bridge."
"I definitely wouldn't call her my favorite," Watts laughs.
Though Destiny's Child has not officially disbanded, the group hasn't released a full-length album since 2004's Destiny Fulfilled. Knowles, 31, is currently headlining the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, while Kelly Rowland, 32, is busy promoting her recently released album, Talk a Good Game. The new judge is also taping episodes for the third season of The X Factor, airing this fall on FOX. Williams, 32, will star in her own reality show, My Sister's Keeper. Her latest solo single, "If We Had Your Eyes," was released on June 24.
Kendrick's episode of Comedy Bang! Bang! airs Friday, July 26, at 10 p.m. EST on IFC.
