Yes, Ariel Winter can sing

She’s been acting since she was very young, starring in almost every episode of ABC’s Modern Family as the brainiac of the family, Alex Dunphy. However, Ariel Winter is more than an actor. This performer is also a singer, performing periodically on the Emmy award-winning series and with other film and tv-related projects. 

Unlike actors like Ewing Reed, however, Ariel Winter hasn’t branched off to create and release original music on platforms like Spotify. However, she has released live covers on YouTube, including one of Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble.” Published in 2013, the video now has almost a million views. 

Ariel Winter sings during a few episodes of ‘Modern Family’

There are a few episodes of this series were Haley Dunphy sings and more than a few episodes where Cameron Tucker singers. For Alex Dunphy, though, portrayed by Winter, there are a select few episodes where she shares her talents. 

During the “Best Men” episode of Season 4, Claire is trying to spend more time with her kids, specifically Haley, who has been extra distant lately. The two decide to pop in on Alex’s band concert in a coffee shop, which isn’t a nerdy orchestra at all. 

It’s like a real rock band and Alex is singing there, too! Haley and Claire are pretty shocked. For the “White Christmas” episode, Gloria books a cabin with the hopes of finally enjoying a snowy Christmas. 

Turns out, it’s super hot in the cabin and there’s an estranged relative of another family, Fig, staying there. The whole mood of the vacation changes when Alex and this scientist sit down together at the piano and sing a Christmas carol.
