Jennifer Lawrence breaks into the charts with 'The Hanging Tree'

We shouldn't be surprised that Jennifer Lawrence can sing (since it seems like she can do anything), but we still stopped breathing when Katniss sang "The Hanging Tree" for the District 13 rebels. According to the U.K.'s Official Charts Company, the song is now positioned at No. 29 on the charts after calculating midweek sales. Let's see how high the song can go!

Jennifer has been very honest about how she cried when filming this scene because she was so nervous to sing in front of the crew and claims to sound like "a deer that has been caught in a fence" when she sings.

But I think we can all agree that while she might not be Adele, it's a perfect performance of a perfect song for this movie.

Also check out Jennifer joking around with David Letterman about her performance.
