Evan Rachel Wood Rocks ‘Son of a Preacher Man’

Evan Rachel Wood might have lost the role of Eponine to Taylor Swift in the newest adaption of Les Miserables, but that doesn’t mean the actress can’t sing.

On Saturday night, Evan Rachel Wood made a surprise appearance at the Hotel Café in Los Angeles. She unexpectedly jumped on stage during a concert and performed Dusty Springfield’s “Son of a Preacher Man”.

Although Wood is not yet recognized for her singing talent, this isn’t the first time she’s showed off her vocal prowess. She performed “What’s Up?” (4 Non Blondes) for George Clooney, broke into a Justin Bieber song on Jimmy Fallon, and starred in The Beatles’ inspired film, Across the Universe.

Wood wowed the audience with her flawless rendition of this sultry classic. Watch below.
