Jackie Chan Sings Elvis

Jackie Chan swapped martial arts for karaoke when he appeared on a US chat show. The 55-year-old film star performed a rendition of Elvis Presley hit Can’t Help Falling in Love to mark what would have been the King’s 75th birthday.

The studio lights dimmed as Chan took the microphone from show host Ellen DeGeneres and burst into song. After beginning the number in his seat, he soon stood up and received a standing ovation from the audience.

Chan appeared on DeGeneres’ show to promote new movie The Spy Next Door.

Plus one here. Most of my English I learned by listening and singing Elvis-songs from 13 years on...around 1977 here in Switzerland. Always got these critical comments from my Oxford-trained english teacher for not pronunucing "I can't ..." correctly. As I did it the I Can't Stop Loving You way...as Elvis did live in Las Vegas 69...LOL...and...ain't it Funny how time slips away.

Many people learned English through listening to their favorite singer: Elvis. Maybe Jacky did the same. This really great actor paid tribute to the King in a way so nicely blended with his own promotion, fantastic.
