Last night, Kate Hudson showed off her vocal chops—and I have to say, it was actually, really impressive. Sure, this isn't the first impromptu performance Hudson has given. The actress has been known to belt out a tune now and again when the occasion presents itself. (See here (opens in new tab) and here (opens in new tab), for example.) Plus her lip-syncing skills (opens in new tab) are kind of amazing. And I guess she did have a singing scene (opens in new tab) in the movie NINE back in 2009… But still, I had no idea she could sing sing. 

Hudson hopped on stage at her mom Goldie Hawn's annual Love In For Kids event on Friday evening and delivered a legitimately beautiful cover of Prince's song "Nothing Compares 2 U." 

Listen for yourself below and prepare to be straight-up stunned:
