Jada Pinkett Smith’s daughter Willow Smith wanted to recreate some seriously magical nostalgia for her mom in honor of Mother’s Day by reuniting the band. She did it in the family’s driveway for their Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk and took her mom’s place in front of the microphone.
While most fans know the 49-year-old from her acting career, she fronted a heavy metal rock back called Wicked Wisdom beginning in 2002. They even landed a slot opening on Britney Spears’ Onyx Hotel Tour in 2004.
Jada Pinkett Smith was so moved by Willow Smith’s thoughtful surprise that she was driven to tears. Willow introduced her project at the start of the show, telling viewers, “For the last three months I’ve been planning a huge surprise for my mom. She has no idea that I’ve been orchestrating this reunion. There’s a crew that’s going to set up the gift right here.”
Willow Smith explained, “When I was, I wanna say about 3 or 4, I went on tour with my mom and her band Wicked Wisdom. Wicked Wisdom was lit. This is the music that I grew up around. My mother was superwoman, she was a rock star, warrior and nurturer all in one.” Happy Mother’s Day!
