When the voice behind Darth Vader speaks, it’s instantly important. But what about when he recites Bieber lyrics?

Deep-voiced acting legend James Earl Jones stopped by OWN’s The Gayle King Show and gave his signature spin to the song, “Baby.” And though Jones had never listened to the teen pop star before (because he apparently lives under a rock), he still gave the words the raw emotion they needed.

If NewsFeed had its own morning show, we’d invite Jones to sing a duet with Josh Groban, alternating between Bieber’s lyrics and Kanye’s tweets. (via Thought Catalog)
