Watch Gwyneth Paltrow's Daughter Apple Sing and Play Guitar in This Instagram Video
Music obviously runs in the family! Proud mom Gwyneth Paltrow posted an Instagram video of her daughter, Apple Martin, playing acoustic guitar and singing—and it is more than likely to get you into the holiday spirit.
Wearing a white gown with angel sleeves, fifth-grader Apple showed she's inherited musical talent not only from her father, Coldplay frontman and guitarist Chris Martin, but also from Paltrow herself, who displayed impressive vocal chops when she appeared as substitute teacher Holly Holliday in the second and fifth seasons of Glee. In the clip, the 11-year-old covers "Keegan's Christmas" by alt-rock band Marcy Playground along with a group of other young performers (on guitars and ukuleles).
Paltrow used the adorable video to wish her Instagram followers "Best wishes and love to all for a happy holiday." Watch it here:
Last week, Paltrow suggested Apple may aspire to be a Taylor Swift-level singer/songwriter when she posted an Instagram shot of the pop star hugging Apple with the caption, "Happy Birthday #taylorswift. Thank you for being the kind of #girlboss that you are. And for being Apple Martin's biggest inspiration."
Despite hugs from family friends who also happen to be celebrities, Martin and Paltrow are trying to give their children as normal a life as possible, sending Apple and little brother Moses to their L.A. school on the school bus, unlike many showbiz parents who have the offspring roll up with car and driver. During a 2014 appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Paltrow said, "they take the bus and then I pick them up at the bus stop. It's pretty cute."
