WATCH: Sarah Hyland Covered “Closer” and Even the Chainsmokers Are Impressed
We’re calling it: When Modern Family eventually wraps, Sarah Hyland could have quite the successful music career. The 25-year-old actress collaborated with the rock band Boyce Avenue to cover “Closer” by The Chainsmokers featuring Halsey, and we might even like their version better than the original.
Hyland covered Halsey’s part of the chart-topping hit and harmonized on the chorus, showing off her impressive vocal range. Clearly, a music career is something that’s been on her brain, and rightfully so, as she can sing. “Thank you so much @boyceavenue for asking me to collaborate with you guys! I’ve been dreaming of this since I was 19 years old!” she wrote on Instagram.
We aren’t the only ones who think so: Even The Chainsmokers are obsessed with the cover. “Hey @Sarah_Hyland and @boyceavenue you sound awesome! So cool y’all did that,” the group wrote on Twitter.
Luckily, we’ll get another chance to hear Hyland’s singing chops next week, as Boyce Avenue revealed that she collaborated with them on another cover. “Glad you guys liked it! We have another cover with Sarah coming next week too,” they wrote on Twitter.
The Modern Family star’s next acting role will also involve her vocals: The actress will star as Lisa Houseman in the upcoming musical remake of Dirty Dancing.
