Willow Smith

Willow Smith, also known as simply 'Willow,' was born October 31, 2000 and today is a very compelling, talented, and particularly, stand-out artist. She is the daughter of the famous Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. She began her career in acting and then decided to pursue music. Her most notable single was, "Whip My Hair," which was on the Billboard Hot 100, proceeded by "21st Century Girl." She is currently signed under the rapper Jay-Z's recording label 'Roc Nation.' She is also a philanthropist and works with the 'Keep a Child Alive' campaign which helps to provide treatment for those affected by HIV/AIDS.
I personally find Willow Smith extremely compelling. Not only is she the daughter of two very talented Hollywood actors but she took the music scene by storm merely by the age of 10. Her young age and talent combine to make a impenetrable force in the entertainment business. She also has a stand-out style sense, which adds to her overall image. Her fun, upbeat music is catchy and uplifting. I believe her to be an inspiration, that despite her young age, her talents have shown through and allowed her to become who she is today.
