Willow Smith Wows With New Ballad 'I Am Me' (Video)
The 11-year-old's new single, which debuted during the BET Awards pre-show, showcases the movie star progeny's impressive vocal chops.
An unexpected surprise at the 2012 BET Awards? Willow Smith -- not just the movie star progeny's mere presence arrival at the Shrine Auditorium, but her presence.
To wit: the 11-year-old's new song "I Am Me," whose video she debuted during the BET Awards pre-show, shows a maturity far beyond her tween years. The heart-warming ballad also showcases her impressive vocal chops, which sound surprisingly light on sweetening and heavy on talent.
Explaining the song and the clip, which shows a captivatingly androgynous Smith in various New York City locales acting, quite simply, like a kid, the singer told BET pre-show co-hosts Rocsi and Terrence J., "It's what symbolizes me as an energy and a person." Indeed, when it comes to her natural pull, there's no denying a bright future for the daughter of superstar couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith.
