The Queen of Neo-soul Erykah Badu seems to have passed on her beautiful voice to her daughter Puma. The 17-year-old regularly showcases her talents on social media to the amazement of her fans.
When it comes to unique music style, Eryka Badu, 50, carries home the trophy. Following right behind is her daughter Puma Curry, who can already hit the high notes at such a young age.
The singer often wows her fans on her social media when she does song covers. Her voice is similar to her mother’s, and Badu couldn’t be prouder.
