Katie Holmes reveals "talented" daughter Suri Cruise is making her film singing debut
Katie Holmes doesn't want to wait to show off her daughter Suri Cruise's musical skills.
The Dawson's Creek alum revealed that she recruited the 16-year-old to sing a cover of "Blue Moon" in the opening credits of Alone Together, a COVID-19 pandemic-inspired romantic comedy she wrote and directed.
Explaining her decision to include Suri—whom she shares with ex-husband Tom Cruise—in the project, Katie told Yahoo! Entertainment, "I've always wanted the highest level of talent, so I asked that out."
"She's very, very talented. She said she would do it and she recorded it, and I let her do her work," she continued. "That's how I normally dictate: It's like, 'I guess that's what we all want—go do your job.'"
Katie said Suri's singing will also be featured in her upcoming film Rare Objects, which she shot last year, although "in addition, she's a 16-year-old who's doing high school."
In a full circle moment, Katie shared that Suri also has a special connection to the classic ballad, which was famously covered by Diane Keaton in 2014.
For her part, Suri has largely stayed away from the public spotlight since she entered her teens.
The main star behind Yusuke Uramashi has broken his silence about signing on for this big new adaptation.
