Producer Rodney Jerkins, who’s worked behind the boards for artists such as Beyonce, Rihanna,Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston, may soon be producing records for his daughter, 5-year-old Heavenly Joy.
The pint-size entertainer auditioned for America’s Got Talent and won over the entire panel, including Howard Stern. Before doing double duty, belting out her tune and tap dancing, Heavenly–who also goes by Heav–was stoked about hitting the stage. With her dad and mother, singer Joy Enriquez watching proudly in the wings, the Calabass, Calif cutie sang “In Summer” from the Disney hit Frozen.
After receiving a round of applause from everyone in the audience, the shock jock compared Heavenly to film and television actress Shirley Temple, but Heavenly was not having it.
“I think Shirley Temple is living inside of you,” Stern said. “Is that possible?”
“Not Shirley Temple,” The charismatic chanteuse responded. “Jesus!”
