Meet Beyoncé's 3 new teen protégés (and future millionaires)
There are so many reasons to love Beyoncé. Her voice, her independence, her music, her badass feminism. . . she can do no wrong.
And now, she’s given us yet another reason to bow down: she’s invested in the future via talented teens. Our queen has now taken three young teenage girls under her wing and has made them destined to be total superstars. The girls, 17-year-old Chloe Bailey (left, below), 16-year-old Sophie Beem (middle), and 15-year-old Hailey, have got some MAJOR talent going on. Memorize these faces—because you’re going to be seeing a them a TON in the next several years.
It all started when Beyoncé’s manager stumbled across a YouTube video of two of the young girls—sisters Chloe Bailey, 17, and Halle Bailey, 15—belting out a totally gorg cover of “Pretty Hurts” (originally performed by the queen herself). The video, posted in December 2013, now has over 8 million views.
According to NY Daily News, court papers quoted the girls’ father as saying that they “have been singing, dancing, and acting together since they were toddlers.” They’ve written hundreds of songs and have an ultra amazing YouTube channel going on. Oh, and their success isn’t only in music—they’ve appeared various films, including “Last Holiday,” “Meet the Browns,” and “Let it Shine.” And they’re not even 18. We’re totally blown away.
Now, Parkwood Entertainment, Beyoncé’s management company—launched in 2008—has offered the sisters multiyear contracts that could turn them into superstars and millionaires. Listen to their ridiculously beautiful voices, and you’ll see why:
According to NYPost, the girls’ $1 million contact provides up to six albums over a period of five years. And that’s not all—the girls, who “worship” Bey, will be working directly with the queen, herself, on upcoming projects. OMG.
Chloe and Hailey aren’t the only superstars-to-be whom Beyoncé has taken in. Sophie Beem, a 16-year-old singer-songwriter, will also be managed by the company. The former X Factor contestant reportedly wowed Bey’s management team and landed herself a $560,000 recording option. Not too shabby.
We honestly can’t WAIT to see what these three girls end up doing, and we’re sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of them in the near future.
