What's a good song to sing for a musical audition?

I need to sing a one-minute excerpt. I'm not the best singer, so I was hoping to find an easy song to sing. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance :D

I'm an actor. I usually sing "Piano Man" or "Your Song" for auditions. But it really depends on what your singing voice is like.

Is there a song you're always humming? Consider it before all others, even if it's atypical for an auditon, like gospel. OR a lovely oldie from way before your time like "Cheek to Cheek", or "Pick yourself up start all over again." Go for something bouncy in lyric and beat, but in which you make great eye contact and achieve warmth in your voice. In so many ways it's an opportunity for you to make new contacts, learn a new song, and if you can't get a vocal coach to help you with breathing and delivery, then borrow somebodies old cassette tape recorder (!) or pick one up used, plus a tape, and hear yourself!

Sam Cooke's "A Change is Gonna Come", but you have to be an amazing singer.
"Hallelujah" is another good one.
