Blue Ivy Sings With Mom Beyonce in Sweet Moment in 'Homecoming' Doc

By

Blue Ivy Carter certainly takes after her famous parents!

The oldest daughter of Beyonce and JAY-Z steals the show in her mom's documentary, Homecoming, which hit Netflix on Wednesday. During an adorable moment in the doc, Blue belts out a stunning rendition of "Lift Every Voice and Sing," a poem by James Weldon Johnson that was eventually set to music.

In the sweet black-and-white clip, Beyonce leans down to whisper in Blue's ear before the now-7-year-old shows off her impressive pipes that are reminiscent of her iconic mother. 

"High as the listening skies / Let us march on / Till victory is won," Blue sweetly croons.

Blue is a hit in the room with people off-camera clapping and cheering for her, while her mom exclaims, "Beautiful job, Baba. You sound so pretty!"

"I wanna do it again," Blue says. 

"Oh, you wanna do it again? You're like Mommy, huh?" Beyonce asks.

"I wanna do that again! 'Cause it feels good!" Blue agrees.

"It feels good? OK. If you want to, go. Lift every voice and sing," Beyonce directs, referencing the title of the song that's often referred to as the Black National Anthem.

Blue's performance was such a success that Beyonce included the incredible moment on her surprise albumHomecoming: The Live Album, which also dropped on Wednesday.

Throughout the doc, which follows the lead-up to and culmination of Beyonce's historic Coachella performance last April, Blue is seen at her mom's rehearsals, where she rehearsed with the dancers and played guitar.

Preparing for her epic Coachella performance was a time-consuming task, one that made Beyonce miss both Blue and her 1-year-old twins, Rumi and Sir.

"I'm just trying to figure out how to balance being the mother of a 6-year-old and twins that need me and giving myself creativity," Beyonce says in the film. "Physically, it was a lot to juggle. It's like before, when I could rehearse 15 hours straight. I have children, I have a husband, I have to take care of my body."

"My mind wanted to be with my children," she adds. "What people don't see is the sacrifice."

Despite sacrificing time with her "tribe" -- whom she describes as "my sanctuary, my weakness and my strength" -- Beyonce says she is proud of the performance she and her team put together.

"I feel we made something that made my daughter proud, made my mother proud, my father proud," she says.

Homecoming: A Film By Beyonce is now available to stream on Netflix.
