She's best known as Monica Gellar from Friends, but it looks like Courteney Cox can play far more than a Type-A New York chef. 

The Emmy-award winner has revealed her secret talent in a surprise video with Natasha Bedingfield, much to the delight of her adoring fanbase. 

Courteney teamed up with the British singer on Monday for a collaboration of her hit 2004 song, Unwritten, unveiling yet another skill on her already impressive resumée—pianist. The Friends icon tapped the piano keys effortlessly along to Natasha's powerhouse vocals while guitarist Rod Castro—who's played for the likes of Beyonce and Ellie Goulding—rounded out the set with some gorgeous chords. 

The upbeat clip, which is a teaser for the duo's upcoming performance at UCLA's Environmental Institute on 13 October, saw the unlikely pair come together for the first time in public. 

While Courteney kept most of the event details under wraps, it's expected that the concert will raise awareness for the climate emergency, which has been made even more apparent by the disturbing findings of the 2021 UN climate change report

Fans were quick to share their appreciation for the musical treat, praising the Friends star for consistently providing top-notch content on her Instagram. After all, it wasn't too long ago that Courteney Cox showed off her Monica-inspired kitchen to her 11.7m followers, before challenging others to share their own organizational skills with her. 

"Wow, always with the best posts 😍❤️❤️" one follower wrote in response to the Natasha Bedingfield collab, which has now been liked over 137k times. 

"Courteney you are AMAZING at everything clearly!! I’ve been learning the friends theme tune on the piano like you did ❤️" another fan commented. 

Natasha even dropped a comment of her own, writing, "Can’t believe how much our guitarist @iamrodcastro looks like your painting! Totally makes my whole life to have you playing my song with me @courteneycoxofficial 👏👏👏 love you".

The collaboration may seem random to some, but Courteney and Natasha aren't exactly strangers to each other. The English songwriter is known to keep tabs on the Friends star, regularly posting sweet comments on her social media updates. Natasha even praised Courteney's parenting style back in May, celebrating her close relationship with her 16-year-old daughter Coco after she uploaded a video of the teenager covering Taylor Swift's song cardigan. 

"I love how your [sic] looking at her. So much love in that look," she wrote. 

This isn't the first time Courteney has shown off her musical side. As well as sharing previous videos of herself playing piano with her daughter, she has also experimented with different genres in the past. In January, Courteney Cox clapped back on ‘cougar’ joke with an epic guest spot in a rap song—proving there's really nothing this multi-talented star can't do.
