The internet is quite the place. Today it gives us the above video of a young Anna Kendrick singing in a 1998 concert event at Carnegie Hall.
Kendrick, then an early teen, shared the stage with the likes of Rosie O'Donnell and Liza Minnelli. Though Kendrick sings "Life Upon the Wicked Stage," a song from "Show Boat," the Tony-nominated actress is actually taking part in "My Favorite Broadway: The Leading Ladies." Kendrick is supported by Kit-Kat Girls from a revival of "Cabaret." The event was hosted by Julie Andrews.
Watch above and let us know what you think in the comments. Did you recognize the "Pitch Perfect" and "Twilight" star from her early gig? A current photo and other early work from today's biggest are available below.
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story erroneously described "Life Upon the Wicked Stage" as a song from "Cabaret."
