It looks like 2018 ESSENCE Festival headliner Erykah Badu has passed a little of her musical magic down to her teenage daughter Puma.
The Grammy Award-winning songstress celebrated 47 years of life over the weekend with a star-studded birthday bash in her hometown of Dallas, Texas that included a sweet serenade from 13-year-old Puma, who left the crowd in awe with vocals that sound a lot like those of her famous mother. The proud mom shared the priceless moment on her Instagram page, where she gushed over her mini-me as any mom would. “Thank you PUMA!! I love you,” she wrote in the accompanying caption for the post. See the video below.
Dozens of fellow iconic musicians and entertainers were also on hand to celebrate Ms. Badu’s big day, including Dave Chapelle, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Mos Def, Michael Blackson and others. The songstress shared additional footage from the night on her personal Facebook page.
Be sure to grab your tickets to see Erykah Badu light up the stage as part of a special headlining curation by The Roots, at the 2018 ESSENCE Festival in New Orleans this July.
