Culture

It looks like Jennifer Lopez, actress, pop sensation, and mother, has yet another future pop star on her hands. Emme Maribel Muñiz, Lopez’s 11-year-old daughter and twin sister to Max, proved that she has inherited her parents’ talent by showcasing her own beautiful voice, with a version of Alicia Keys’ soulful “If I Ain’t Got You,” no less.

Over the weekend, Lopez uploaded a video on YouTube that highlighted the past week in her life and shared behind-the-scenes footage of preparations for a live performance of “Medicine,” her newest single, which she performed for the first time on May 6 as part of the Today show’s summer concert series.

When Lopez took a break from dancing to practice her vocals with piano accompaniment, her daughter joined her. Lopez suggested that Emme should sing Keys’ track, and with little coaching, her daughter belted out the song. She was rewarded with a round of applause and a proud mama hug.

If you’re thinking that the musical family should treat us to their combined gifts more often, you might be in luck. “We should have her come out and do something on tour,” Lopez said after Emme finished singing. “Want to put a little piece in this show? We’ll see, we’ll check it out. You don’t have to.” Lopez’s It’s My Party Tour will begin on June 7, if you’re curious to find out whether they’ll reprise this mother–daughter duet.

The full interaction between Emme and her famous mom begins at the four-minute mark. Watch below:
