I'm not [completely] ashamed to admit that I like to read Buzzfeed. And I'm a sucker for the lists. "7 kitchen gadgets that will change your life" "22 gifs that are basically you as an adult" "15 quotes from Parks and Rec that perfectly describe finals week"
So today, I'm giving you a Buzzfeed-esque list!
1. Mark Twain- Did you know Mark Twain played the accordian, guitar and banjo? True story.
2. Zooey Deschanel- That really is her singing in Elf and she sings the Theme song for New Girl. Did you also know that she is in a musical group called "She and Him"?
3. Albert Einstein- There's no question this guy was a genius. Is it a coincidence that he also happened to play piano and violin?
4. Hugh Laurie- We love him as Dr Gregory House, cantankerous genius with social issues. And like his character, Hugh Laurie is also an accomplished musician. He especially loves Jazz.
5. Neil Armstrong- This name is the first we think of when we think of the moon and space travel. But did you know that Neil Armstrong also played the Baritone?
6. Ryan Gosling- Is there anything he can't do? Watch him sing and play the piano with some cute kids singing back up.
7. Louis Braille- This is one of my favorites. The man who created Braille (the way blind people can read) played the Organ. I just think that's super cool.
8. Condolezza Rice- This Former Secretary of State even got to tickle the ivories for Queen Elizabeth II. And you might have seen her in a cameo on the TV show 30 Rock.
9. Bernie Williams- For those of you who know sports (I'm not really up on my sportsing), he was a New York Yankee. But apparently he's also grammy nominated and composes his own songs. He plays the Guitar.
10. Chris Evans- Our very own Captain America has a hidden talent. Watch him play and sing with his brother. It's a bit rough, but I'm sure it's because he was worn out from saving the world or doing push ups or something.
Lists are fun. I liked watching various videos while I put this one together. It's fun to see all the hidden talents of people we think we know so much about!
I will definitely be doing more lists like this!
