Blue Ivy Delivers Adorable Cover of the Negro National Anthem

Looks like talent didn’t fall too far from the tree! In Beyoncé’s new Netflix documentary, “Homecoming,” the “Formation” signer and Jay Z’s eldest daughter Blu Ivy sings the negro national anthem, Rosamond and James Weldon Johnson’s “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”

This isn’t the first time Blue has been featured in her parent’s work. We can hear the destined superstar crying at only a few days old on her father’s 2012 song “Glory.” She was also on Beyoncé’s 2013 song “Blue,” which begs the question, when is Blue’s album dropping?

Her adorable performance only adds onto the epicness of Beyoncé new film, which documents her iconic Cochella performance and the behind-the-scenes preparation that led up to it. The documentary has also come with a complementary live album that shook the Bey Hive and beyond. One particular track that struck a chord was Queen B’s rendition of Frankie Beverly and Maze’s classic Black BBQ hit, “Before I Let Go.”

Check out a snippet of Blue’s performance and “Homecoming” below:
