Actor Johnny Depp was forced to overcome his fear of singing in public for new musical SWEENEY TODD. The 44-year-old feared he would have to back out of the film, warning director Tim Burton that he wasn't very confident in his singing abilities. He says, "I think I was probably more frightened than anyone. I've never tried karaoke. It scares the hell out of me. I've never been that drunk - and I've been drunk. Tim said he didn't know if I could sing, and likewise, I didn't know if I could sing. "I did these demos in my friend's garage studio because I didn't know if I'd be able to hit a note, to be honest, I really didn't. I did that and sent it to Tim and he said we're going to be okay. And then I became a bit more confident."

This humble hottie doesn't realize just how talented he really is! God gave him such a gift. After hearing him on YouTube, I'd say the man can SING! Granted, he's not an opera singer (for all the other Sweeney Todd fans out there who prefer the other lead singers in the musical); His voice is more a rock singer voice and if he ever decides to record a cd album, I'll be the first in line to purchase it. Great Job!!LOVE YA JOHNNY!!

I hope a soundtrack comes out for the movie. I'd surely buy it (I really do get into that type of music). He truly has a beautiful voice. I'd be great if he did more musicals.Does any one know if he sang in Cry Baby? (I thought that was him singing)
