Holy crap, Justin Tucker has the voice of a sweet baby angel

We all know Justin Tucker's pretty good at being a kicker in the NFL. But little did we know he was also a wonderful singer. On Thursday, Tucker made a guest appearance at the Baltimore Basilica, where they held a Christmas concert. Tucker sang "Ave Maria," and holy crap, he can sing:

According to ESPN, getting Tucker to come and sing was no easy task, seeing as how other places couldn't get a hold of him:

"They said, 'Well, somebody on the committee knows somebody who knows somebody who knows the handler of Justin Tucker,'" Polochick said. "I said, then tell the somebody to tell the somebody to tell him that the Archbishop wants him to sing this year. Then when he is place-kicking, we know he'll have the real connection."

Furthermore, he actually was a band geek in high school, and studied music at the University of Texas under a professor who's a) an opera singer and b) a former professional hockey player. Also, this isn't the first time he showed off his opera skills to the public. Hit it, Justin:

If Tucker ever quits football to be an opera singer, it would actually be pretty awesome, and I would buy many tickets to his shows.

And not only can the Ravens kicker sing, he can dance, too:
