Throughout history, kids have followed in their parents’ footsteps. First, literally, as they learned to walk, and then figuratively, as they entered adulthood and forged careers. While it’s become rarer in many parts of the world to pass down a family business, there’s definitely a caveat if your parent(s) work in entertainment. Music specifically seems to have a knack for passing down from parent to child, and the list of 2nd-generation singers is as long as it is impressive, including stars-to-be like Beyoncé’s daughter Blue Ivy Carter, Pink’s daughter Willow Sage Hart, and more.
From Billy Ray Cyrus’ pop star daughter Miley Cyrus to musical legend Judy Garland’s daughter Cabaret star Liza Minelli, there are so many examples of musically talented families where each generation has their own sound to contribute, and where kids can carry on the family business in a whole new way. Many of today’s celeb parents have taken to social media to show off their genetically gifted offsprings’ talents over the years, and it’s safe to say there are plenty of famous kids out there today who will be huge on the music scene in five or ten years — think Will Smith’s daughter Willow Smith, or Jennifer Lopez’s daughter Emme Muñiz.
