Family Guy creator to sing in London


When people think of Seth MacFarlane, the first thing that pops to mind is likely Family Guy. Or maybe The Cleveland Show or American Dad, his other two Fox network comedic cartoons. Some would even list Ted, his recent movie about a foul-mouthed teddy bear. But now the comedian is adding a new feather to his rapidly filling cap - that of singer.

MacFarlane will be among the performers singing with the John Wilson Orchestra at London's Royal Albert Hall tonight, in celebration of the sound of Broadway, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The musical performance is part of the BBC's annual Proms, which organizers have called the "world's greatest classical music festival." I know when I think of historical music festivals, I think of Seth MacFarlane. The Proms run from mid-July to early September. 

This year, the Proms are paying tribute to the composers and arrangers responsible for creating the Broadway Sound, including the likes of Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Vincent Youmans, Richard Rodgers and Frank Loesser.

MacFarlane will be singing baritone.

“I’m somebody who would be pretty restless if I confined myself to one discipline, no matter what it may be,” said MacFarlane, regarding about his interest in music. “There’s a purity to the vocal style of that era that we were trying to shoot for."
