Jennifer Garner has impressed with her incredible singing voice
Italian singer-songwriter Andrea is world-renowned and has a legion of fans, including members of the royal family. He sang at the Queen's 90th birthday celebrations back in 2016 and has been great friends with Sarah Ferguson for many years. She invited him to perform at her daughter Princess Eugenie's royal wedding in October 2018. Just after the big day, he opened up about his friendship with Sarah in an interview with the Evening Standard. "Sarah Ferguson has been a very good friend of mine for many years now. She invited me [to sing] for this reason: because we are very close friends. We met a long time ago in a TV studio. I heard somebody knocking on my door, I opened it, and it was her — and she was giving me her book. I think it was a sort of biography of her life."

Jennifer has had a busy few months. Not only has she been singing with Andrea, but she has also been promoting her upcoming Netflix film, Yes Day. The star appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to talk about the movie, which is based on the children's book by the late Amy Krouse Rosenthal, centring around parents attempting to say "yes" to their children for an entire day. The mother-of-three revealed that it had inspired her to do the same with her own brood, which is something they love, despite thinking that their mum isn’t so fun the rest of the year around.
"It's about a mum who one day of the year says 'yes' all day long, and if you're like me, I kill the fun. I am so lame. I say no to everything. They call me 'The Dragon,'" she joked. "So, on one day a year, I just say 'yes,' which literally applies to anything, even if her kids say, 'We want pizza with ice cream for breakfast, or with toothpaste.'" The actress also revealed that while her oldest daughter Violet, ten, and son Samuel, seven, have very different ideas on what defines "fun", the one thing they bond over is joking with their mum – normally at her expense!
