Joseph Gordon-Levitt Covers ‘Hey Jude’ During The Sundance Film Festival

If you’ve seen Joseph Gordon-Levitt in 500 Days of Summer or last year’s critically-acclaimed 50/50, you know the talented actor has some acting chops. But it turns out he can also sing live and play the guitar.

He recently wowed audience members at an event in support of his collaborative venture, hitRECord, at Sundance's Eccles theater.

The 30-year-old actor performed “Hey Jude” accompanied by an acoustic guitar and had audiences cheering by the end of the song.

This isn’t the first time Gordon-Levitt has belted out a tune in front of a camera. Last month, he recorded a video with his 500 Days of Summer co-star Zooey Deschanel featuring the duo covering a Nancy Wilson song. It’s already received more than 8 million views.
