“I am not a singer, but I think, getting ready for Ursula, I was so surprised that I could actually, like, control my voice,” said McCarthy on the red carpet at the 2022 Critics’ Choice Awards.
The 51-year-old comedian improved her crooning with the help of vocal coach Eric Vetro. However, McCarthy has no plans for a music career just yet: “But still, you have to know which lane you’re in… and I’m fine with that.”
