"The Life And Times Of Prophecy"
Who knew Hayden Panettiere went from a Hero to gettin gangster and makin music to stay true to the “Hood”…
Hoodwinked that is, as in “Hoodwinked Too! : Hood vs. Evil” her animated film which came out on Friday, April 29th and is the sequel to the original “Hoodwinked!” which was released in 2005. Hayden lent her vocal talents as “Red Riding Hood”, the original voice for “Red” in “Hoodwinked!” was provided by none other than Anne Hathaway. But it’s the other side of vocal talent that Hayden is hoping to make a real break for her career, and that’s as a singer. Hayden sings “I Can Do It Alone” for the films soundtrack, and it definitely matches the “feel good” manufactured pop sound you would except from an animated children and family feature.
While I would say that Hayden’s singing ability are definitely better than expected, we will have to wait and see if she can venture out of animated family film soundtracks and make it in the real world of the Music Industry, where competition is fierce and you can’t escape your way through CGI. One thing is for certain, the Weinstein Company should’ve definitely taken a bite out of that $30 Million Dollar film budget, and done a little better in the music video. They certainly could’ve accomplished a whole lot more than Hayden singing, while sitting in front of a green screen with superimposed footage from the film.
I’m just saying. If you’re trying to kick start your starring actresses career in music, you should’ve gave it a greater effort. But hey, who says you need to spend millions on a music video to make a hit… Just hire Keenan Cahill.
