Actor Jeremy Renner Sings ‘House Of The Rising Sun’

A big Hollywood star shows he is more than just an Oscar-nominated actor as he performs a classic hit song from The Animals.

Jeremy Renner is one of the biggest names in Hollywood. Due to his many performances as Hawkeye in Marvel films and television shows, Jeremy has become a household name. But in addition to gracing the silver screen and displaying his acting chops, Jeremy also has immense musical talent.

In a clip posted to YouTube, Jeremy performs “House of the Rising Sun.” The video, which has more than 1.2 million views, is the official lyric video of the actor/singer belting out the lyrics to the 1960s track.

Jeremy’s version is not simply a rehashing, a remake of the original version. Instead, the Avengers star puts his own spin on the beloved song. He makes it his own and displays the strength of his voice in the process.

His version has a much more modern, updated sound. The song is sped up slightly and adds a few more beats and loops. Jeremey also sings in a slightly different cadence from the original version. Yes, it is the same song with the same lyrics about troubles encountered in New Orleans, but Jeremy adds some things to it.

Jeremy’s cover isn’t likely to win over people totally in love with the original, believing no one should touch it. But it is not going to turn off listeners either and have them desperately seeking out the 1964 classic to cleanse their ears. 

Jeremy singing “House of the Rising Sun” is not the only song he performs. His YouTube channel is littered with videos of him performing songs.  

Jeremy is a Hollywood A-lister who has been blessed with a ton of talent. He is an Academy Award-nominated actor who regularly appears in huge blockbuster films. He also has an impressive set of pipes, which are more than capable of pulling off a tremendous cover. 

James 1:17 “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no fickleness, neither shadow of turning.”
