Listen to Jennifer Lawrence Sing in the New ‘Hunger Games’

Jennifer Lawrence was reportedly so worried about singing this sorrowful tune in “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1,” she cried the day of the recording.

“She’d probably tell you it was her least favorite day,” director Francis Lawrence said in an interview. “She was horrified to sing, she cried a little bit in the morning before she had to sing.”

Judging by the recording, however, the Oscar-winner sounds like a natural.

The song, called “The Hanging Tree,” was composed by James Newton and the Lumineers, and is featured in the new Lionsgate film.
