It runs in the family! Pink’s 7-year-old daughter Willow can seriously sing
A newly-released YouTube video gives a revealing glimpse into how the daughter of music superstar Pink has inherited her mum’s impressive vocal talents.
Recording her track A Million Dreams for The Greatest Showman – Reimagined, an album of covers from the hugely successful Hugh Jackman-starring movie musical, Pink and her 7-year-old daughter Willow Sage Hart engage in playful banter between takes.
“I think you’re fun,” the 39-year-old tells her daughter, who replies, “Why?”
“Because you’re fun, I’m glad I had you.”
Willow is also a guest artist on the album, and fittingly, sings A Million Dreams (Reprise). And boy can she sing!
Kneeling beside her daughter, Pink supportively mouths the words to the popular song, as Willow belts out the tune. The pair also sing together as part of the recording.
During the footage, the singer and mum of two, who gives a typically powerful performance on her version of the song, told The Greatest Showman director Michael Gracey of her gratitude to him for making the film.
“I grew up watching Annie,” Pink explained to Gracey. “To have her [Willow] finally have something like this …You made our favourite movie ever.”
On Twitter, users wrote of how moving they found the mother-daughter performance.
“I watched this early this morning when it first aired and I watched it again just now and choked up with happy tears each time,” said one.
“Willow has a beautiful voice, Pink’s joy in working w/her daughter & the song itself are a great way to begin & end the day!”
“Honestly the most heartwarming cutest thing I’ve seen ever!” said another.
“The bond you both have is amazing and priceless, the best of friends. It’s so amazing to see such a connection between a mother and a daughter! You rock @pink”
The album The Greatest Showman – Reimagined will be released on November 16.
