Here’s A Thing No One Asked For: Non-Singer Gisele Bundchen Covers A 60s Rock Classic

Gisele Bundchen Fall 2013 H&M campaign

Today, in things that really bum us out: as part of her Fall 2013 campaign duties for H&M, Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen has recorded a cover of “All Day and All of the Night,” a perfect song by The Kinks.

Now, we are huge assholes for leading with that, because it is a charity single. Every free download of which benefits UNICEF. Really sorry. Per Vogue:

The song, All Day And All Of The Night by The Kinks, will be available for free download from hm.com, and will also be on iTunes, raising money for UNICEF. For every single download from iTunes, H&M will make a donation to UNICEF to enable the purchase of vaccines for children.

“I am so excited to be the face of H&M this autumn,” Gisele said. “I love the street style look, and that we can raise funds for a good cause. I hope everyone downloads my song!”

 

As for the recording itself, if you are so inclined, you may witness Gisele in the studio wearing a considered H&M look (below). No, she cannot sing, and, no it doesn’t really matter because her voice becomes so processed (and ultimately swallowed by the production) that you can’t really hear it. As far as supermodels turned singers go, we’d rank it somewhere in the neighborhood of Tyra Banks, but less self-serving.

Here’s the footage of Gisele in the studio. After you’ve watched 30 seconds, go listen to the original:

      Is it just me, or does her accent get thicker when she’s singing? Maybe she’s playing up the fact that English is her second language to deflect criticism? If so, it is not working.

        as Jean implied I’m blown away that a person able to get paid $8734 in a few weeks on the internet. This Site w­w­w.J­A­M­20.c­o­m

      So I followed the link to the Tyra song. I shouldn’t have…but I did.

      Yeah, I like her a lot. If you want real pirating maybe try ‘You Really Got Me’, the Kinks versus the Van Halen version – saw them do it doing warm up for the Moody Blues. Didn’t like Van Halen’s first albumn, but some of their later stuff grew on me. Fair Warning.
