I've been rewatching Jesus Christ Superstar recently and this thought sprang into my mind - did the real Jesus ever sing? I mean, are there any records to that effect in the Scriptures or elsewhere, perhaps, in apocryphical texts, coptic texts, don't know..

Yes. Matthew 26:30 and Mark 14:26 both state:

When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

"They" here refers to Jesus and His disciples. It occurred immediately after The Last Supper.
