We are often coming back to this subject because it is really interesting. Why are sports and music so related? Of course, both are a form of entertainment and about having fun and brings a smile on people faces. To go to a sports event without music would be a bit weird. In this article, we will cover another aspect of sports and music. We will list our top 3 favourite sportsmen that actually play music. Either an instrument or are singing.
Pau Gasol is a famous NBA player in LA Lakers. But when he is not playing basketball he loves to play bass violin. He even plays at the Opera in Los Angeles. He loves going to concerts and even writes his own music.
And maybe most important of all. Pau Gasol listens to music before every game. He uses it to sharpen his mind and get prepared for the games.
The New York Rangers goalie, Henrik Lundqvist, knows his way in more places than on the ice rink. He is actually a really good guitar player and was even in a band or two growing up in the little town in Sweden, called Båstad. Even though he might not come to the same level as he’s been doing playing ice hockey, he has actually a quite big performance as well. At the Jimmy Fallon show, Henrik Lundqvist played live on stage. Song of choice? Sweet Child of Mine by the Guns N’ Roses!

The Philippine fighter Manny Pacquiao also knows his way around a guitar. On top of that, he does vocals too. Whether it’s good or not, we actually can’t say. He hasn’t been exactly too generous showing his skills. However, in some way, it’s our favourite on the list. This sportsman, also known for being into politics in the Philippines, doesn’t exactly gives the impression of being into music. But, apparently, we are wrong!
