Celebrities Are Reacting To J.Lo’s Daughter, Emme, Singing On Stage At The Forum This Weekend

Jennifer Lopez kicked off her “It’s My Party” concert tour in Inglewood over the weekend which has had fans excited for months. The tour will include 36 shows which will take place across Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America. For her first leg of the tour, the singer started in Inglewood and brought a bright little surprise on stage with her for a performance as well.

Lopez’s daughter, 11-year-old Emme Maribel Muñiz joined her mother on stage to perform a duet of “Limitless” which was featured in Lopez’s recent film Second Act. Coincidentally, the song’s title proved that J.Los daughter is a girl with no limits herself.

Together the mother-daughter-duo belted out the lyrics to the single and hit some pretty impressive notes.

Both wore red gowns and their long flowing hair as they made a night of the “It’s My Party Tour.” During her daughter’s take on the duet, Lopez could be seen turning and putting her hand to her chest and then later moving down to her knees to show just how in awe of her daughter she was.

Concert-goers from that night weren’t the only ones to be surprised by the performance.

Stars like Reese Witherspoon, Laverne Cox, and Zoe Saldana all shared their love for Emme’s performance in the comments section of J.Lo’s post.

“We all cried!!” Saldana wrote in response to the performance. Meanwhile Witherspoon enthused “What a voice!”

We have seen lots of Emme, who is now 11-years-old, on her mom’s Instagram.

She looks so much like J.Lo too! She embodies her mom’s fierceness and charm, but we had no idea she was also so talented.

J.Lo often refers to her kids as her little coconuts, but Emme is much more than that.

We have also heard Emme sing a little bit here and there on her mom’s Instagram.

We could never tell, however, how much range she had until now.

Recently, J.Lo posted a video of her busy and glamorous life, per usual, but there was one moment that really stood out.

The video was a compilation that she posted over the weekend that included her rehearsal, wrapping up her new movie “Hustlers” that also stars Cardi B. Then we see Emme walk into the rehearsal room with her mom.

In the video, J.Lo instructed her daughter to sing Alicia Key’s “If I Ain’t Got You” in the original key.

The musical director tells Emme to give her performance some sass and to start pointing as if she means her words. Then Emme takes it home in the most powerful way.

Emme’s voice is truly outstanding. Check it out in the 4-minute mark.

We are so impressed by her natural talent and the fact that she is clearly taking singing lessons as well.

If she sounds this good now we can only imagine she’s going to improve.

If you’d like to see more of Emme and her twin brother Max, check out this cute and hilarious Q&A with their mom.

Hey J.Lo, can you adopt us, please?!

While the United States is as of publication, has vaccinated over 75 million people against COVID-19 since mid-December, the rest of the world is still catching up. Poorer countries, for example, are struggling to procure enough vaccines for essential workers–let alone their entire population.

Luckily, certain charitable business are making it their mission to get vaccines to the most needy. For example, anti-poverty organization Global Citizen has organized a charity concert with the aim of getting COVID-19 vaccines to developing countries.

Selena Gomez will be hosting the concert, called “VAX Live: The Concert to Reunite the World”. And none other than Jennifer Lopez will be headlining.

Selena Gomez took to Twitter to announce her involvement in the exciting project. “I’m honored to be hosting ‘VAX LIVE: The Concert to Reunite the World,’ ” she wrote.

“This is a historic moment to encourage people around the world to take the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available to them, call on world leaders to share vaccine doses equitably and to bring people together for a night of music in a way that hasn’t felt possible in the past year. I can’t wait to be a part of it.”

Jennifer Lopez also took to Twitter to announce her involvement with VAX Live, saying that she is “calling for equitable COVID-19 vaccine distribution for all”. That’s a statement we can get behind!

Jennifer Lopez isn’t the only superstar performing. Other acts will include J Balvin, H.E.R., and the Foo Fighters.

Global Citizen has one goal: to raise $22 billion for global vaccinations via corporate and philanthropic donors. They’re hoping VAX Live will bring awareness to their efforts.

“There are 27 million healthcare workers globally who don’t have access to the vaccine,” said Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans to the Associated Press. “I’m 38 years old, and it’s not ethical for me to have access to the vaccine before these heroic first responders and community health workers. So we need governments to start urgently donating those doses.”

Tom Hart, the executive director for another anti-poverty organization, The ONE Campaign, also reiterated the importance of getting vaccine doses into the hands of developing countries.

“Low-income countries not only need this welcome fundraising effort; they need access to COVID-19 vaccine doses,” Tom Hart said.

“The United States has secured over 550 million excess doses that could be used to help end the global pandemic faster.”

You can catch VAX LIVE on ABC, CBS, and iHeartMedia stations on 8:00 p.m. ET on May 8th. It will also be airing on Fox starting at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT the same day. You’ll also be able to catch an extended version on Global Citizen’s YouTube channel on May 8th as well.
