In 2011, Sting held a concert in New York to celebrate his 60th birthday. The famed rockstar invited many of his famous friends on stage, including Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel and Lady Gaga. But you may be surprised as to who really stole the show — Robert Downey Jr., who joined Sting on stage for a now viral duet. Not only is he a handsome, charming and talented actor, but who knew Robert Downey Jr. is also an incredible singer?! Seriously, is there anything he can’t do?
Prepare to be amazed as the two megastars share in an awesome duet of “Driven To Tears,” a 1980 track from Sting’s band, The Police. Downey Jr. was a bit nervous to stand alongside his musical hero, not wanting to disappoint him on his birthday, but the second he opens his mouth it’s clear there’s nothing to be nervous about. Not only is his voice beautiful, but he manages to add that touch of gruff to his vocals, which makes him sound eerily similar to Sting himself.
Please enjoy this surprisingly great performance, and SHARE it with your friends on Facebook!
