Hear Blake Lively Sing in ‘All I See Is You’

Blake Lively’s newest project, All I See Is You, has shed light on the actress’ impressive talents, from portraying a blind woman’s struggle with her regained sight onscreen to wearing seven different outfits in a day on the press tour—but it’s also given her an opportunity to show off her pipes.

Lively sings two songs on the film’s original soundtrack, which was quietly released at the end of last week. The first is “Double Dutch,” a simple tune she sings with a child, backed by guitar strumming.

The second is “In Our Dreams,” a simple yet melancholy love song.

Director Marc Forster didn’t know whether Lively could sing or not when she was cast and even considered dubbing her with someone else’s voice, Vanity Fair reports. But he ended up using her real vocals.

“Suddenly we were in a studio in LA and she is in front of a mic and she starts singing,” Forster said of the recording session, which took place in Babyface’s studio. Apparently the R&B icon even approved of Lively’s vocals. “He came in and was suddenly standing there saying, ‘She’s great! She needs no help,’” the director added.
