Willow Smith whipped her candy cane hair at the holiday tree lighting and grand opening of the L.A. Kings Holiday Ice at L.A. LIVE in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday (Dec. 4). Proud parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith watched from the audience as their daughter sang her debut single with a Christmas twist. Willow will travel east to perform at the Power Live Holiday Party at New York’s Highline Ballroom next Saturday (Dec. 11).
The 10-year-old singing sensation and her brother Jaden were named Entertainers of the Year by Entertainment Weekly, along with Taylor Swift and Kanye West. Willow, who picked Lady Gaga, B.o.B, and Eminem as her favorite entertainers of 2010, said she wants to pursue acting. “I’m focusing on music right now, but I’m going to pick acting up soon,” she told the magazine.
