The Astros had a clubhouse singalong recently and pitcher Lance McCullers decided to let fans in on the moment, showing the world that Jose Altuve is also an All-Star when it come to karaoke.

The Houston second baseman belted out some vocals along with the Backstreet Boys megahit “I Want It That Way,” much to the delight of his giggling teammates.

The beautiful rendition of the love song inspired an equally excellent Photoshop, which also was shared by McCullers.

​Altuve leads the major league in hits, but with golden pipes like that, he could soon be making hits on the Billboard charts. Just kidding, his voice is kind of bad and he should not abandon his very promising baseball career to become a pop star.
