Jennifer Lopez is a multi-talented triple threat, so it’s no surprise that her 11-year-old daughter, Emme, has inherited her skills. Emme recently proved she has her mom’s pipes when she belted out “If I Ain’t Got You,” by another famous songstress, Alicia Keys. The video that includes her singing was posted to Lopez’s YouTube channel.
Entitled “Ain’t No Weekend Like a J. Lo Weekend: My First Time Performing Medicine Live,” the video chronicles a weekend in the life of the star, beginning as she wraps up shooting her upcoming movie, “Hustlers,” at 6 a.m. on Saturday, May 4.
That night, she also begins rehearsals for her live performance of “Medicine” in the Summer Concert Series on NBC’s “Today” on Monday, May 6.
In the middle of all that, Lopez manages to steal a minute to watch her daughter sing at the piano. The touching moment comes at about 4:12 in the video below:
Wow! Emme can really hit the high notes! Lopez’s pride for her daughter is evident as she coaches her through the song.
At the end of her performance, mother and daughter embrace, and Lopez suggests that Emme could have a part in her upcoming tour, It’s My Party, which kicks off at the Forum in Los Angeles on June 7. That would certainly be an amazing opportunity!
The rest of the video shows Lopez as she prepares for her big day on Monday, including a wardrobe fitting on Sunday, more rehearsals and a sound check in front of the audience, after which Lopez greets fans in the crowd gathered to see her.
Before she finally takes the stage, Lopez sits down for a brief interview with “Today” host Savannah Guthrie, in which she discusses her recent engagement to baseball legend Alex Rodriguez.
“We just get along,” Lopez told “Today” about their relationship. “We just complement each other. He’s super supportive. He allows me to be who I am, and I want him to shine in the greatest way possible and to be his best self. We just help each other be better people in a way. And we love our families — we’re very similar as well.”
Rodriguez also recently appeared on the “Today” show and discussed their recent engagement, as you can watch in the YouTube video below. The athlete said he actually rehearsed the engagement several times in order to get the timing of the sunset just right.
He also revealed that when it comes to wedding planning, he is leaving that to Lopez and the rest of their family members.
Family is something that’s clearly very important to both Rodriguez and Lopez. In fact, this isn’t the first time Lopez has showcased her daughter. Just a couple of weeks ago, she shared a video in which she allowed her twins (yes, Emme has a twin brother, Max — their father is Marc Anthony) to interview her.
She posted that video on YouTube, too, which you can watch below:
This charismatic youngster may have a future following her famous mom into the music business. Way to go, Emme!
