Chrissy Metz is known for acting on This Is Us, but she’s also a very talented singer. Though she’s given us a glimpse of her singing voice on the hit drama, she made her live singing debut at the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday night. Metz blew everyone away as she performed “I’m Standing With You” from the soundtrack of her new movie, Breakthrough, alongside Carrie Underwood.
Just like her This Is Us character, Kate, Metz has had a passion for singing for a long time. When POPSUGAR talked with the actress in March, she admitted that Kate’s desire to chase her dreams and become a musician has actually inspired her in her own life. “We both were never encouraged or supported about that,” she said. “What’s cool is that I don’t think she ever did it because she wanted to be some major star. She just wanted to express her feelings. That’s how I feel about music. When I finish an EP or an album, if one person shows up, great. If 200 people [show up], great. I will sing by myself because I enjoy it.”
