Ansel Elgort is clearly a man of many talents. The Fault in Our Stars actor delivered quite the treat to guests attending his cousin’s wedding this weekend, when he took to the reception stage and nailed a cover of ‘50s classic “I’ve Never Been In Love Before.”

“Sang one of my favorite old love ballads for my cousin @phoebeawhite‘s wedding,” Elgort wrote on Instagram. “So happy for their passionate union.”

In the clip, the Divergent franchise star delivers the Frank Loesser-penned ballad with ease, and rounds out his performance by receiving hugs from the newlyweds. The original tune was introduced in 1950 in the musical Guys and Dolls.

Clearly pleased with the outcome of his wedding performance, Elgort later posted an extended video on Twitter. “Honored to sing for my cousin Pheebe’s wedding,” he expressed. “Welcome to the family Divya.”

The actor has received a resurgence of attention for his musical talents especially with the upcoming release of his new movie Baby Driver. The New York native, who attended a prestigious Manhattan performing arts school, recently spoke to Billboard about his career transition.

“There are a lot of things I want to do, and I never want people to be like, ‘Ugh, that guy singing? Desperate,’” he told the magazine. “Eventually, I hope I can have a career that’s uncategorizable. And that’s hard. I think that would be very difficult to do, but I’m hopefully going to pull it all off.”
