This dynamic duo went from singing covers of Beyoncé songs on YouTube to being signed to Beyoncé’s label, Parkwood Entertainment. Our terrific women this Friday are Chloe and Halle Bailey.
They signed to Parkwood Entertainment in 2013 when their rendition of Beyoncé’s song “Pretty Hurts” went viral. Ever since then they have opened for Beyoncé on tour, booked acting jobs, performed at Coachella, and dropped an album.
Chloe x Halle’s music is very unique and always have a powerful message behind it. Their song, “Warrior,” which is featured in the Disney movie, Wrinkle of Time, was about the strong women in their life. It emphasized the importance of uplifting women and how we can be just as ‘strong’ as men.
Chloe x Halle are also series regulars on the Black-ish spin off, Grown-ish. They also wrote and sing the theme song of the show, “Grown.” Many believe these sisters are twins however, they are actually two years apart. Chloe is 20 years old and Halle is 18. On Grown-ish however, their characters are twins.
These girls are an inspiration and a great example of what hard work looks like. They recently were nominated for 2 Grammys and I couldn’t be more excited for them. I appreciate their music and what they stand for. Chloe x Halle are definitely girls with beauty and brains.
