Playing All of Cara Delevingne’s Hidden Musical Talents

Cara Delevingne is one talented woman.

At 22 years old, Delevingne is launching her acting career with her first leading role in the film adaptation of Paper Towns, co-starring Nat Wolff and arriving in theaters on Friday. The transition into acting comes after becoming a dominate force in the modeling world.

First discovered at age 10, when she was featured in a Vogue Italia editorial shot by Bruce Weber, Delevingne has starred in campaigns for DKNY, H&M, Tom Ford, and Yves Saint Laurent. She has also donned wings for two Victoria’s Secret runway shows and, in July, appeared on the cover of Vogue.

While her focus has turned to acting, Delevingne has also demonstrated her musical talents, which many fans got a taste of when she teamed up with Pharrell Williams for Chanel’s short film, Reincarnation, or more recently when she beatboxed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

But her abilities don’t stop there! Let’s explore all of Delevingne’s hidden music talents:


As mentioned before, Delevingne proved she can (literally) carry a beat on The Tonight Show. But followers of her Instagram account may have seen her beatboxing the Mario theme with Williams and Justin Timberlake.

While she can mimic percussions with her mouth -- she would have made a perfect addition to Pitch Perfect 2 -- Delevingne can also play the drums. In 2013, she showed off these skills at Charlotte Tilbury’s House of Rock ‘N’ Kohl. Watch her rock out at the :43 mark in the video below.

During a recent appearance on the Spanish talk show, El Hormiguero, she was asked to put her drumming skills on display once again. She jumps behind a set at the :57 mark. 


During the same show, the actress was handed a guitar -- at the 5:37 mark in the video below -- and promptly played a flamenco tune, “Malagueña,” before going into an acoustic rendition of “Sweet Home Alabama.” Also, she did this all with the guitar behind her head. 


She may have left the singing to the puppets in the video above, but Delevingne can also carry a tune. She was featured on singer Will Heard’s song, “Sonnentanz (Sun Don't Shine).” 

More recently, she sang a duet with Williams in the Karl Lagerfeld-directed short film for Chanel. Around the 5:05 mark she takes over vocal duties. And it should be mentioned that she also puts her dancing talents on display. 

Delevingne is practically a one-man band. It’s any wonder why she’s isn’t playing backup for her bestie, Taylor Swift, on the singer’s 1989 World Tour. Or maybe, she could collaborate with girlfriend St. Vincent.
