15 Latinos Who Sang On Their Own Soundtrack

Life is unfair. In addition to being fabulous, famous, and attractive, these Latino stars can all sing... and act!

From Selena Gomez to Gloria Estefan, these 15 stars showed off both their talents at once, and sang on the soundtracks to their own movies: 

1. Selena Gomez

"Hold On" from Rudderless. 

Selena Gomez teamed up with indie rocker Ben Kweller to record "Hold On" for the Rudderless soundtrack. The movie deals with a father coming to terms with his son's death, and the music is appropriately bleak. 


2. Gloria Estefan

"Music of My Heart" in Music of the Heart. 

You're welcome for reintroducing you to this incredible collaboration. Gloria Estefan teamed up with N'Sync to record the song for the Music of the Heart soundtrack. Estefan made her big screen debut in the heartwarming flick, and even picked up an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song. 


3. Oscar Isaac

"Hang Me, Oh Hang Me" from Inside Llewyn Davis. 

The movie -- and the song -- are both beautiful odes to the music of 1960s Greenwich Village in New York City. Isaac successfully showed the world that he was an acting -- and singing -- force to be reckoned with. 


4. Salma Hayek

"Quedate Aqui" from Desperado. 

We know what you're thinking: Salma Hayek can sing? The Mexican actress showed off her impressive vocal abilities in Desperado, singing the haunting track "Quedate Aqui." 


5. Jennifer Lopez

"Alive" from Enough. 

Jennifer Lopez and her ex-husband, Cris Judd, penned this song for the movie Enough, a thriller about a waitress who falls for a wealthy contractors then flees with he becomes increasingly abusive. 


6. Marc Anthony

"Mi Gente" from El Cantante. 

Marc Anthony starred as Héctor Lavoe in El Cantante, a biopic of the salsa legend's life. In addition to playing Lavoe, Anthony re-recorded many of his hit songs, including "Aguanile", "Che Che Colé", "El Cantante" and "Mi Gente." The critically acclaimed soundtrack won the Best Salsa Album award at the 2008 Latin Grammy Awards. 


7. Christina Aguilera

"Something's Got A Hold Of Me" from Burlesque. 

Bet you forgot that Christina Aguilera and Cher starred in a movie together, huh? Cher won a Golden Globe for Best Original Song in 2011 for her performance of "You Haven't Seen The Last of Me." Sadly, Aguilera didn't win anything -- although we still love this song. 


8. Joaquin Phoenix

"Walk The Line" from Walk the Line. 

Joaquin Phoenix took on the challenge of playing infamous country artst Johnny Cash for the movie Walk the Line. Phoenix perfectly captured Cash's spirit on-screen and through his re-recordings of his most famous songs, including "Ring of Fire", "Folsom Prison Blues" and "Walk the Line." 


9. Demi Lovato

"This Is Me" from Camp Rock. 

Camp Rock solidified Demi Lovato as a Disney superstar. She proved she had some serious vocal chops, especially when she belted out the lead single from the movie - "This Is Me." 


10. Mariah Carey

"Loverboy" from Glitter. 

We wish we could forget about Glitter. The movie and the song were both universally panned by critics, and "Loverboy" has the dubious reputation of being Mariah Carey's first single to not reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100. 


11. Cameron Diaz

"I Fall Apart" from Vanilla Sky. 

Okay, she's not the best singer, but Cameron Diaz gave it her best shot in Vanilla Sky, belting out the alt-rock jam "I Fall Apart" for the soundtrack. 

12. Diego Boneta

"Don't Stop Believin" from Rock of Ages. 

Diego Boneta proved he had true talent when he starred in the on-screen adaptation of Rock of Ages. The Mexican has a killer singing voice, and he used it to sing classic hits from the original musical like "Jukebox Hero", "Waiting For A Girl Like You" and "Don't Stop Believin."

13. Alexa VegaPena

"Isle of Dreams" from Spy Kids 2. 

For the second installment of the Spy Kids franchise, Alexa PenaVega recorded "Isle of Dreams" -- and proved she was much more than just an actress.

14. Rita Moreno

"America" from West Side Story. 

There's a good reason Rita Moreno is the only Latino to win an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. This Puerto Rican star can sing, dance and act, and she showed off all three talents in one of the most beloved musicals of the 20th century: West Side Story. 

15. Rosario Dawson

"Light My Candle" from Rent. 

Who knew this boricua could sing? Rosario Dawson proved that she can seriously belt it out when she starred in the movie version of Rent.
