Not only has Michelle Williams put on the platinum blonde hair to play to the legendary (and curvaceous) Marilyn Monroe, she's trying out her singing voice as well in the upcoming "My Week With Marilyn." As you already know, the movie centers around the actress' trying time on the set of Laurence Olivier's "The Prince And The Showgirl" and in addition to singing "I Found A Dream" that was featured in the movie, Williams tries Monroe's breathy voice on in a few other selections as well.

Not only has Michelle Williams put on the platinum blonde hair to play to the legendary (and curvaceous) Marilyn Monroe, she's trying out her singing voice as well in the upcoming "My Week With Marilyn." As you already know, the movie centers around the actress' trying time on the set of Laurence Olivier's "The Prince And The Showgirl" and in addition to singing "I Found A Dream" that was featured in the movie, Williams tries Monroe's breathy voice on in a few other selections as well.

Spanning twenty-four tracks the soundtrack is a mix of Conrad Pope and Alexandre Desplat's music for the along with some song cuts from the film. Williams gets three tunes to herself a medley of "When Love Goes Wrong, Nothin' Goes Right" and "Heat Wave" that Monroe sung in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" and "It's No Business Like Show Business." She also gives a whirl at "The Old Black Magic" that was originally sung by Monroe in "Bus Stop." Other highlights of the disc include tunes by Dean Martin and Nat King Cole and famed pianist Lang Lang is a featured performer on a strong handful of Desplat and Pope's compositions.
