In light of the newest film to hit theatres, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, it’s only fitting that Kelly Clarkson take a whack at covering the theme song. She sings “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” originally sung by Mister Fred Rogers in the children’s TV show Mister Rogers Neighborhood. Clarkson has a segment on her show called Kellyoke where she performs covers of songs that are connected to the guest appearing on the show.

Can you guess who the guest was? Tom Hanks! He recently stunned both film critics and moviegoers alike with his portrayal of the legendary Fred Rogers. You can bet he did an absolutely fantastic job singing the theme song in the movie as well! Clarkson’s performance was complete with a professional dancer silhouette in the background. The silhouette is also meant to be a portrayal of Fred Rogers coming into his house and hanging up his jacket.
