Actress turned singer number 507.

Hayden Panettiere, the young actress in Heroes, has decided to focus on her singing career. Her first single was set to be digitally released on August 5, but was first played on Ryan Seacrest's radio show.

The song, called "Wake Up Call," will be promoted by Candies, who will absorb the "majority of the cost" of the single, which includes a music video, print campaign, and a multi-million dollar ad buy on cable and network TV.

If you recall, this is very similar to Fergie's "Big Girls Don't Cry" video, where you see Fergie styled by Candies, and hanging up her Candies underwear to dry.

"Wake Up Call," is described as a "reggae-flavoured pop song" by Ken Bunt, a senior VP of marketing for Hollywood Records, the label that will be releasing her debut album in 2009.

The song isn't terrible, but nothing spectacular either. The style doesn't seem to really suit Hayden.
