Lily's Anatomy

Last night's 'very special episode' of Grey's was mostly about the struggles of the working mom. To that moral quandry, Baily (Chandra Wilson) sings the closing montage, "God Bless the Child," as a lullabye for her baby Tuck. Always interesting to hear the actors sing, and Wilson handles Billie Holiday very nicely.

As far as recorded music goes, the episode opens to blogtastic Lily Allen and her song "Not Big" which could describe a certain part of Lily's Anatomy [Idolator] which 'flashed' through the blog world like crazy this morning. I know there's a push for exposure here in the US, but this might be taking it a bit far.

The episode title track, is also worth mentioning, as it references TV on the Radio's great song "Staring at the Sun," and any chance to trumpet the great TVOTR I'll take, thank you very much.

Episode Title Track: "Staring at the Sun" - TV on the Radio

Are you certain that was Chandra singing, and not a voice over? I suspect it was her doing her own voice over, but not sure, and very curious. Aside from minor sync problems it was a great rendition.

I'm certain it was Chandra singing (in a voice-over.)

Wilson got her start acting in musicals (high school) and is a Broadway veteran so you can count singing as one of her many talents.
