Oh-oh, oh-oh, struck by lightning. Who would have thought Harry Potter alum Rupert Grint would take the path of music?

Rupert recorded the song “Lightning” as part of the British animated film Postman Pat: The Movie. And you know what? The boy can really sing!

This shouldn’t really come as a surprise, as some of my fellow Potterheads might remember, Rupert recorded a rap song explaining why he should play Ron Weasley and sent it as his audition tape. The musical talent has been in this boy’s veins from the beginning!

But wait, not only is Rupert singing this pretty catchy tune but he also voices the character of Josh, Pat’s musical rival in the movie

Postman Pat: The Movie, the adaptation of the classic BBC children’s series, follows Pat going about his duty delivering letters when one day, he auditions for a TV talent show, which he manages to pass. While he is in the contest, Pat-Bots are deployed to take on his postal duties. They soon turn out to be part of an evil plan that only Pat, and his trusty black and white cat Jess, can stop.

“I’m not convinced it’s me. It is quite an easy, catchy song but I just did it because I thought it would be quite fun but they have obviously done some kind of auto-tuning”, Grint joked.

Joining Rupert in the voice cast are Stephen Mangan, David Tennant, Jim Broadbent and Ronan Keating as Pat’s singing voice.
