That headline is worth repeating. Who the heck knew Russell Wilson could sing? Watch
Seriously, we just came across a video of the Seattle Seahawks quarterback belting out Usher’s “Nice and Slow” while on stage with Preston Pohl and Trenton George at the Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum, Washington. Apparently it happened at an event the Russell Wilson and Kasey Kahne fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club TheDrive back in June of 2014, but it’s just now going viral.
The back story is that Wilson overheard George – a resort employee – singing in the hallway while he was working then later brought him on stage to sing together!
Trenton George is doing the lead on the song, but Russell clearly has some serious vocal skills as well.
Check out the video below and hear it for yourself. We can only wonder if there’s a duet in future between Russell and Ciara. We know they look good together, but now we bet they sound good together, too.
