aaliyah on star search, jazmine sullivan performing accept what god allows, jazmine sullivan performing home, old school friday
I decided to do a little spin on this week’s theme, which is child stars. Again, I’ll be featuring female artists for Women’s History Month.
My picks weren’t child stars although they should have been. My first pick, in particular, sent more chills up my spine with her sent-from-heaven voice at 11 than she does now at 22. Not surprising when you were singing with Stevie Wonder at age 13.
Watch Jazmine Sullivan singing “Home” in her elementary school production of The Wiz followed by her appearance on Showtime at The Apollo where completely destroyed me with “Accept What God Allows.”
Finally, for some reason, Babygirl has been on my mind this week…and in my iPod. Check out a clip of Aaliyah performing on Star Search.
Be sure to visit the other OSF participants picks for the week.
Enjoy your weekend!
I forgot all about Aliyah.. She had an AMAZING voice at at a young age
Wow, Jazmine had that booming voice even at 11. Amazing! Sounds like it could have been a couple years ago, not 10. Aaliyah was so adorable, she was wearing that song out too.

Wow, JS @ 11…CRAAAZY!
But them outfits were just WRONG, lol.
I had that same dress that Aaliyah had on…wore it to my senior benediction…mine was all white, though.
Great choices…Jazmine blew me away then, very much like she does now!
Awesome choices! Aaliyah is awesome (sigh … was), Jazmine has a powerful voice, I’m not much of a fan though.
