Young artists have been popping up like mushrooms in recent years! After famous singers like Shawn Mendes, Khalid, Lil Pump, Billie Eilish, Jaden Smith, Willow Smith and many more who debuted very young, here comes Halle Bailey! She made her debut with her sister Chloe, and since then she has been turning heads! Not only a singer, but she was casted for the role of Ariel. Let’s find out more about her.
A newborn Mermaid
The 19-year-old girl along with her sister Chole started their career on YouTube. They used to post cover songs of famous singers. It then inspired the famous singer Beyoncé when they made her a cover for the song ‘’Pretty Hurts’’. This concept has also inspired Lucky VIP casino online to develop musical games. Surely, we love music so let’s head to a game called the Musical Adventure in Lucky VIP. The two girls have made music their passion. Chloe x Halle won the 2019 Grammy Awards for ‘’best new artist’’ and her album ‘’ The kids are alright’. This is quite impressive for their age.
Halle is chosen to play in Ariel in the fourth-coming action movie, Little Mermaid. Ariel got some negative comments. And the news has been spreading all over the internet about her being a ‘’black Mermaid’’. And on the other hand, she got more positive and encouraging responds such as ‘’ The actress casts as Ariel can sing, act, dance, and is beautiful. But Racists (yes, that extreme irritation you feel is racism) are like Mermaids can’t be black! Well, crabs can’t talk so we’re all stretching here. Shut up.’’ But for her, she said ‘’It was a dream come true’’. The director of the movie, Rob Marshall , stated that: ‘’After an extensive search, it was abundantly clear that Halle possesses that rare combination of spirit, heart, youth, innocence, and substance—plus a glorious singing voice—all intrinsic qualities necessary to play this iconic role,”
Many took the side of the young talented girl. Even Benson, who invented the role of Ariel in Disney was concerned over the racist comments against the artist. Benson mentioned: “I think the most important thing is to tell the story, we have, as a family, raised our children and for ourselves that we don’t see anything that’s different on the outside. I think that the spirit of a character is what really matters. What you bring to the table in a character as far as their heart and their spirit is what really counts.”
Tweets went all over the page on the racist comments. A Twitter user commented their version and wrote ‘Seeing a black mermaid with locks is something I never would’ve imagined seeing 10 years ago,” one Twitter user wrote. “Now many little black girls around the world will be able to look at their screens and say “That’s me! I can be a mermaid too!!”
