Thursday, June 16, the future star once again accompanied Jennifer Lopez in the spotlight, during the Blue Diamond Gala.
The two artists performed
A Thousand Year together.
Succession is assured for the 52-year-old singer who entrusted in 2019, after a performance by her child published on social networks.

A not “normal” childhood
Born of her union with singer Marc Anthony (real name Marco Antonio Muñiz), Emme and her twin brother Maximilian grew up surrounded by the success of their parents, but always behind the scenes.
The twins notably followed correspondence courses, allowing them to enjoy privileged moments with them.
“We don't have a normal life, my children are not normal children.
I'm not normal, so my life isn't either, I ended up accepting that (…).
Everyone tells me to educate them normally, that they need to have friends.
The kind of things that drive me crazy and would drive anyone crazy, ”said Jennifer Lopez in 2016, on the television show Good Day New York.
Before adding: "They are super happy like that,
they are very balanced, loving.
They are caring children and that is the most important thing.
Of course we will make sure they are educated, I think homeschooling is best for them.
Since then, the Muñiz twins have all the same joined the benches of a school, in Miami.
The birth of a star
Having remained behind the scenes for a long time, Emme Muñiz has been appearing more and more often with her mother in public for some time now.
J.Lo is happy to appear with her twins, shares their exchanges on her YouTube channel… And reveals the successful vocalizations of the teenager on social networks.
A family heirloom, it seems.
In May, Emme is illustrated in particular in a video by resuming
If I Ain't Got You
by Alicia Keys, under the watchful eye of her mother.
A performance that will then take him to the Super Bowl stage in 2020, singing his mother's famous title
Let's Get Loud,
in front of the 65,000 spectators present in the stadium (and 100 million viewers).
A moment applauded by a large number of people including her father, who published after the show a photo of Emme on his Instagram account, accompanied by an emotional caption: “Emme, Dad is so proud of you.
You are my heart and I am yours forever.
Confidence and self-confidence
Intimidated by all the hype surrounding her mother's fame, Emme was slow to reveal her talent to the public.
"When I was little, I was really intimidated to sing in public, but not anymore," the teenager said in a YouTube video uploaded in 2019. "I like being on stage when all the dancers are behind me.
Because each time I look in a different direction to see who's behind me.
And the person I prefer to see is my mother”.
Her first steps to stardom came when she appeared in J.Lo's 2018 music video for her new track
, playing her younger mother.

At 14, the teenager gains confidence and begins to understand what kind of person they want to become.
On stage at the Blue Diamond Gala, it looks like Emme asked those close to her to use a neutral pronoun to refer to her from now on.
J.Lo thus presented her child by using “they/them” in English which corresponds to the pronoun “iel” in French, entered in the 2023 edition of Petit Robert.
"The last time we sang together was in a big stadium like this, and I always ask him to sing with me, but he doesn't want to," Jennifer Lopez said to the audience.
“So it's a very special occasion because they're very, very busy, in demand and expensive.
They cost me a lot of money when they come, but it's worth it because
They are my favorite duet partner of all time.”
An accomplice and sharing the same passions with her mother, Emme seems to have a destiny all mapped out.
