In an interview with E! News, Rowland gushed about the 11-year-old Grammy winner’s viral performance this summer. “I’m very proud,” she told the outlet. “She works very freaking hard, period. But how could she not, you know? She sees her mother in action and she sees her father in action and how they apply everything, hard work to everything that they do.”

As theGrio previously reported, Blue first joined her mother on tour when the show was in Paris earlier this year. Since then, her daughter has become a staple in her mother’s tour, appearing in the “Cuff It” singer’s latest stops included in her North American leg.

Blue comes out during “My Power,” the song from Beyoncé’s “The Lion King” inspired concept album, “The Gift.” She goes on to dance along with the background dancers during her Grammy Award-winning 2020 hit single, “Black Parade.”

As theGrio previously reported, Beyoncé’s “Renaissance World Tour” has been a record-breaking venture for the performer. Like the Grammy-winning album of the same name, the tour is a celebration of the Black and LGBTQ+ pioneers in dance, disco, and club music. According to Vibe, the tour has already broken a major record, becoming the highest-grossing tour for a Black female artist.
