She recorded a haunting original hymn called "The Hanging Tree" for her new movie The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.

In a recent interview with David Letterman, Lawrence said singing is actually her "biggest fear" and made fun of herself and the whole experience in that signature Jennifer Lawrence way.

She compared herself to a "tone-deaf Amy Winehouse" and sang like she had heaps of gravel in her throat.

But then a funny thing happened: People actually really liked "The Hanging Tree," which was co-written by indie-folk band The Lumineers and Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins, and made it a hit in the U.K. and Australia.

The Independent.

It was No. 14 this week on the Official U.K. Singles Chart and No. 12 on ARIA's Australian Top 50 Singles Chart.
