Marc Anthony gushes about his and Jennifer Lopez's 11-year-old daughter Emme: 'She's passionate about music and has an incredible voice'
If you are the daughter of Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez chances are that you will be blessed with musical genes. And it's no wonder that Emme Maribel, wants to follow in her parents' footsteps with a career in music, and her father is right behind her with his full support.
Anthony spoke to Enrique Santos on the iHeartRadio show and got candid about 11-year-old Emme and her twin brother Maximilian 'Max' David's love for music and how both his children were "passionate" about music.
Anthony shared, "Music was a big part of my life growing up and I hope it does the same for [Emme] as it has done for me."
"And if that is what she wants to do … well, she should do it because she likes it, not because she has to. Not for fame, or popularity, or for likes," he added.
When it comes to what the "correct" response is, he continued, "I asked Emme, ‘Why do you sing?’ And she said because she feels good. It’s the best response. I have another video of her at a rehearsal. It’s incredible."
Like her parents, Emme has an impressive set of pipes as is seen in Jennifer Lopez's Instagram video, which features the pre-teen singing Alicia Keys' 'If I Aint Got You'.
Lopez had shared a YouTube clip of her preparing for her first ever live performance of her single 'Medicine' and while Lopez was practicing her vocals, Emme made a surprise appearance and was encouraged by her mother to sing Keys' song.
This is not the first time that Lopez has shown off her daughter's beautiful voice. In order to celebrate her birthday in February, Lopez shared a video of her daughter singing a cover of the song 'How Far I'll Go' from the Disney movie 'Moana'. Lopez has also professed her support for her children in whatever they want to do.
In 2012, she shared with Women's Wear Daily, "Here’s what I know about doing what I do — and obviously, their dad is the same way. If they’re going to do it, there’s nothing I can do to stop them — and I’ll support them. But just like my mom, I’m going to make them go to school and I’m going to let them make that decision when they’re old enough to make that decision. I don’t want them to be in the business at a young age."
