It turns out The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1’s “The Hanging Tree” wasn’t Jennifer Lawrence’s first musical performance in front of a large audience.

CNN recently released never-before-seen footage of the Oscar winner, then 14, acting in a high school production of William Shakespeare’s Othello. Playing Desdemona, Lawrence sang a little ditty in front of a crowd at the Walden Theatre in Louisville, Ky., in the video.

“She was precocious. She was energetic,” Charlie Sexton, a director at the Walden Theatre, recalled to the network. “She had to sing a cappella and that’s not easy to do.”

He added, “She was determined. Unflappable.”
