In case you missed the memo, when she’s not acting, Sanaa Lathan enjoys singing from time to time. And not just in the shower like the rest of us, but actually in the studio where she can lay down tracks.

The beauty reminded her fans and followers that she can carry a note while sharing her holiday spirit on social media:

Merry Merry ????

While she didn’t record herself singing for very long to show off her range, many of Lathan’s fans seemed impressed with her vocal abilities.

“I did not know you could carry a tune! Merry Christmas!”
“Didn’t know you can sing. Wow just when I thought you couldn’t get no other cool points.”
“She can sing too???? This is just stupid! Nobody should be this close to perfection! NOBODY!”
“Didnt know you can sing too! We love you beautiful!”

As previously mentioned, Lathan has dabbled in serious singing. Last year, while preparing for the release of The Perfect Guy, the actress was inspired by the thirst of Michael Ealy’s character, Carter Duncan, and decided to work on a song called “Emotional.” It was produced by Detail (who worked on Beyoncé’s self-titled album) and featured rapper Dej Loaf. She posted about stepping outside of her comfort zone and recording the song with the encouragement of not just the producer, but French Montana. Of course, the two were said to be an item both late last year and early 2016:

Life can be amazing when you step outside your comfort zone sometimes and say yes. Who woulda thought I’d have a single out. It tickles me pink Hahahaha! ?Shoutout to @detailgo @frenchmontana for the encouragement. Shoutout to brilliant @misschloeflower on piano the amazing @dejloaf. I’m thinking of this as character I’m playing singing this song. She’s my character Leah’s (in #ThePerfectGuy) ALTER EGO and her name is #BrownSugar.. ? Link in bio. Enjoy.
