Hailee Steinfeld Makes Singing Debut in Pitch Perfect 2’s “Flashlight” Music Video

By  | 

If you were one of the millions of people who saw Pitch Perfect 2 this weekend, you’re probably already obsessed with Emily Junk’s (aka Hailee Steinfeld) original song, “Flashlight.” (Special shoutout if you recognized it as Jessie J’s specially written track for the film!) And if you haven’t seen PP2 yet, well, WTF is wrong with you?! Just kidding not really. Here’s your chance to hear Hailee’s debut musical performance!

Even though the 18-year-old actress sounds effing PHENOMENAL on the track, she never sang in public prior to joining the Pitch Perfect 2 cast. She told People, “Singing has always been something that I love, but I’ve never taken it any further than maybe the shower.”



Thank god she did! Seriously — we wouldn’t be surprised if “Flashlight” becomes 2015’s version of Anna Kendrick’s “Cups!” Here are the lyrics for your karaoke pleasure:

When tomorrow comes
I’ll be on my own
Feeling frightened up
The things that I don’t know
When tomorrow comes
Tomorrow comes
Tomorrow comes

And though the road is long
I look up to the sky
In the dark I found, I stop and I won’t fly
And I sing along, I sing along, then I sing along



I got all I need when I got you and I
I look around me, and see sweet life
I’m stuck in the dark but you’re my flashlight
You’re gettin’ me, gettin’ me through the night
Kick start my heart when you’re shinin’ in my eyes
Can’t lie, it’s a sweet life
I’m stuck in the dark but you’re my flashlight
You’re gettin’ me, gettin’ me through the night

I see the shadows long beneath the mountain top
And I’m not the afraid when the rain won’t stop
Cause you light the way
You light the way, you light the way

I got all I need when I got you and I
I look around me, and see sweet life
I’m stuck in the dark but you’re my flashlight
You’re gettin’ me, gettin’ me through the night
Kick start my heartwhen you’re shinin’ in my eyes
Can’t lie, it’s a sweet life
I’m stuck in the dark but you’re my flashlight



Cause you’re my flashlight
You’re my flashlight, you’re my flashlight
