She wrote: "My mother sent me today this video of a show I did with the great singer Florent Pagny, in Paris to benefit ELA, an organisation for European Association against Leukodystrophies (ALS). 

"I did it some years ago but I still remember how nervous I was to sing and dance live while @Zidane was watching!"

The star’s fans thought she was incredible with many suggesting a Broadway show could be in her future and others branding her voice "beautiful". Plenty had no idea she could even sing!

Salma has spoken about her passion for singing in the past and admitted on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon that it improves her mood. 

"When I'm sad, I take a sad song and turn it into a salsa," she said.  "Like the Beatles say ‘take a sad song and make it better,’” she added, referencing the lyrics of Hey Jude. "It puts you into a good mood."

She's been delighting fans with throwback photos on Instagram recently, but dividing her followers too. 

Salma posted a photo of herself from the nineties with the caption: "Back in the day they used to say I looked like Winona Ryder, what do you think?"

Her followers immediately started commenting but they were utterly split.

"Kind of, but you're beautiful in your own way," wrote one, while another said: "Yes, definitely."

Others commented: "Absolutely not," and "I don’t see it," and some just acknowledged: "You’re both beautiful."
