Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott Credits ‘Sister Act 2′ With Pushing Her to Sing

Lady Antebellum frontlady Hillary Scott is certainly talented, but she didn’t get where she is today without a little help. The engaged-to-be-married star revealed in an interview with Next Movie that she credits Whoopi Goldberg in ‘Sister Act 2′ with convincing her to pursue singing as a career.

“There was a movie that actually inspired me to continue singing. It was ‘Sister Act 2,’ which sounds so random,” Scott revealed when the website caught up with her at Fashion Week. “I was probably 11 or 12, really young, and I’d been singing my whole life.”

Not many pre-teens have their careers mapped out by the time they hit puberty, but the ‘Just a Kiss’ songstress says that she knew — thanks to the 1993 nun comedy — that singing for a living was her fate. She adds, “It was almost like that was when I realized that not only do I love to sing because it’s been a part of my life because my parents do, but it’s a calling. I was like, ‘OK, this is what I’m supposed to do.’ That movie just kind of helped bring it out. I don’t know how.”

Oddly enough, ‘Sister Act 2′ is Scott’s go-to flick to this day. “That’s the movie that I will watch a million times and love singing along to every word,” she admits. “It just inspires me.”
