Actress Evan Rachel Wood, also known as the girlfriend of rocker Marilyn Manson, is reportedly close to tying a recording deal with Interscope Records. According to Hollywood Insider, the deal isn't quite official yet but an announcement is expected in the next few weeks.
The major deal was allegedly prompted by her nice voice during "karaoke". An insider told Entertainment Weekly, "The general buzz is that she does have a very good voice and genuinely wants to make music. You should hear her karaoke!"
Woods had displayed her vocal talent, singing The Beatles classics 'Blackbird', 'If I Fell' and 'It Won't be Long' for musical film 'Across the Universe' that was released worldwide on October 12 this year.
While saying that she's too scared to do a duet with Manson, Evan also mentioned that making an album is within her schedule. "I've actually been singing for as long as I've been acting," she said. "I think I might even be more passionate about music than I am about acting. Doing an album feels like something I just have to do."
