You Know the Voice: Cree Summer rocks out (1999)

Most folks know actress Cree Summer from her many voice roles, on shows ranging from Inspector Gadget to Rugrats, from Batman Beyond to Codename: Kids Next Door, and so on. As it turns out, Cree was just 14 when she was cast as Penny Gadget on Inspector Gadget in 1983! 4 years later, Cree crossed over into primetime to join the cast of NBC's A Different World, a spin-off from The Cosby Show.

But did you know that the lady could sing, too? Cree recorded the theme to Rugrats: All Grown Up, and her character, Susie, was an aspiring singer on the spin-off. Many of Cree's characters have some musical talent, it seems. She's also toured with no less than Lenny Kravitz, who produced and played on her 1999 CD, from which we get the following video, "Revelation Sunshine". Uploaded by KatCanFly. And, yeah, it does sound like there's a little bit of Abagail "Numbah Five" Lincoln (from Codename: Kids Next Door) in Cree's singing voice. Check it out!
