Violet Grohl, the 12-year-old daughter of Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, has already made it clear that she inherited her dad’s musical talents.
She recently joined him on stage to perform a cover of Adele’s song “When We Were Young” during the Notes & Words benefit concert in Oakland, California, and the two make for a dynamic duo! Violet had no problem hitting the high notes as her dad accompanied her on guitar.
Watch the awesome performance from the May 12 show below:
Wow, her voice is powerful, especially considering her age!
Later in the show, Grohl’s younger daughter, 9-year-old Harper, joined her dad and sister to sing backup on Foo Fighters’ 2017 song “The Sky Is a Neighborhood:”
Harper’s skills are just as impressive as her sister’s, and it’s clear Grohl is super proud of his daughters.
Harper and Violet recently appeared in the music video for “The Sky Is a Neighborhood,” in which Grohl directed them. Although many of us know him as a prolific musician, when it comes to his kids, Grohl is just Dad.
“You have to realize that my children don’t see me as a famous rock musician,” he explained to Rolling Stone. “They see me as a slobbish dad and especially when it comes to a director … It’s funny, they were much more cooperative making the video than they are when it’s time for them to clean their room or go to bed.”
Despite their obvious talent, Grohl says his daughters’ lives are largely like those of any other kids, and that they spend a lot of time doing things like watching slime-making tutorials on YouTube and skateboarding.
If they’re interested, I think these two have great potential to follow in their dad’s footsteps with careers in the music business. The bright lights of the stage and a screaming audience clearly didn’t bother them!
