Mckenna Grace, star of ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife,’ debuts her first single, ‘Haunted House,’ which includes a music video.
Mckenna Grace, who starred in Ghostbusters: Afterlife, is bringing more to Hollywood’s new take on the beloved film than just her acting skills.
The song you’ll hear playing during the end credits is performed by the 15-year-old actress who plays Pheobe in the new Paul Rudd-led film.
Grace also released the entire song “Haunted House” with an official music video on Thursday.
Grace tweeted Thursday, “HAUNTED HOUSE out now and SURPRISE!!!”
“I can’t believe I’m typing this, but it’s in the Ghostbusters end credits! Being a part of Ghostbusters is a highlight of my film career, and having my first single be a part of it is one of the greatest honors of my life!”
Grace, who is signed to Photo Finish Records, said the single was inspired by a “rough time” in her personal life during the COVID pandemic in a statement to Entertainment Tonight.
“I wanted to write a song about how even though someone is no longer in your life, their memory never truly leaves you,” she explained.
“It could be interpreted as a breakup song, but it could also be about a friend, a family member, or any other type of broken relationship.”
Carrie Coon plays Pheobe’s mother Callie, and Finn Wolfhard plays her brother Trevor in Ghosbusters: Afterlife.
After inheriting a rural farmhouse from their grandfather, the family discovers a connection to the original Ghostbusters, which leads to chaos.
Paul Rudd, as well as Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Ernie Hudson from the original Ghostbusters, appear in the film.
Acting professionally for ten years and launching her music career hasn’t hampered the young actress in the least, she told Collider ahead of Friday’s premiere of Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
“I’ve been acting since I was five years old, and a lot of people think, ‘Oh, that poor girl,'” she says.
Work is all she does.
‘She needs to get outside and ride her bike,’ she explained.
“Those are the dumbest comments and things to me because I’m having so much fun.”
‘Oh, she needs to be outside,’ it’s like.
‘Ah!’ I’m skating outside, doing all kinds of things.
It’s just that a lot of aspects of my life aren’t shared on social media, so peeking behind the curtain is difficult.
But, to be honest, I enjoy doing this.
This is my life’s work.
Anything creative would be preferable to this.”
