Jennifer Lopez shared a video of her daughter singing, and we have goosebumps
Some things we know are genetic, like hair color or whether you think cilantro tastes like soap. Other things are a little more hit or miss, like athletic ability. I, for one, come from a very athletic family, yet can’t sports to save my own life. Musical talent is another one that may be genetically influenced, but definitely isn’t guaranteed to be passed on. In the case of Jennifer Lopez, however, the debate seems to be officially put to rest.
Lopez posted a video to YouTube showing a day in her life over the weekend. Part of that day included going to her 11-year-old daughter Emme’s vocal lesson. And there, on film, we see Emme belt out “If I Ain’t Got You” by Alicia Keys, and let us just say, the star power was clearly inherited straight from her mother and father, singer Mark Anthony. Emme is already a queen, and we have full body chills from the power of her voice.
The video is a little long, so skip ahead to the 4:07 mark if you just want to see Emme belt it out.
When your mom is JLo, there’s probably a lot of pressure on you to be an absolute star. Yet, it seems like it comes totally naturally to Emme, who stands by the piano and sings that song like it’s what she was born to do. Any bets on how long it’ll be before she launches her solo career? Because the world is ready for it.
For part of the song, JLo sings along, but for the most part, she’s just letting Emme do her thing. And it’s obvious why — Emme shines all on her own, even though her parents are two of the most famous, iconic entertainers of our generation. The kid’s vocal control is already extremely impressive, especially for an 11-year-old. She hits the high notes with absolute ease. And she looks totally calm and like she’s having a good time while she does it. Get the girl a stage, she was clearly born to own one.
People who have seen the video share our opinion that the mega-talented Emme is completely destined for stardom.
Even though this is the internet, a place where people go just to be jerks to each other and where we can’t ever have nice things, we couldn’t find one, single comment criticizing Emme. Sure, there’s probably one buried in there somewhere, because, like we said, this is the internet. But when was the last time you saw so many people online agree about something? Pretty much never. Someone just hand Emme her Grammy right now. This is clearly settled.
With parents as enmeshed in the entertainment industry as Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, Emme will have nothing but opportunities to get that voice in the spotlight in the future (if that’s what she wants to do), and we can’t wait to see where it takes her.
