Zhuri James is melting hearts all over social media with her bright personality and showmanship skills. The toddler was recently featured on her mom’s Instagram stories lip-syncing her heart out on Christmas day, and fans can’t get enough of her.
LeBron and Savannah James’ youngest daughter is a star on the making. Zhuri is only 4-year-old, but she’s already comfortable in front of the cameras and loves to sing, dance and act whenever she has the chance.
On Christmas morning, little Zhuri was caught by her mom enjoying one of her gifts, a pink wireless microphone, with which she performed a lip-sync rendition to Ella Mai’s “Boo'd Up.”
Donning a polka-dotted pink pajama set with the words “Daddy’s N° 1 Girl” on the front, Zhuri put up a show as she mouthed the words to the song while twirling and petting her dog as if it were a fan before closing her eyes tightly to “hit” a high note.
The video, initially posted on Savannah's Instagram stories, has earned thousands of comments from fans who find Zhuri’s antics adorable and believe she has the potential to be a performer in the future. “Zhuri is the cutest little thing! Her personality is awesome,” wrote one user.
Another added, “She and the puppy need a YouTube and a podcast where she just talks and sings.... I’ll tune in,” and a third one added, “She needs to be in a band with Royalty Brown ASAP,” referring to Chris Brown’s daughter.
This is not the first time that Zhuri shows off her sassy personality. Her NBA star dad is always sharing pics and videos of his little princess, like that one time he revealed Zhuri is in charge of the music when they ride a car together.
The Lakers’ player demonstrated it by sharing a video of Zhuri singing to Disney’s Frozen “Love is an Open Door,” while he bobbed his head and smiled to the camera.
James also revealed that at her age, Zhuri has a fantastic fashion style: “How is my 3 year old this fashionable though?!?! She asked if she could dress herself today for school. Man what!! She’s AMAZING!! #PrincessZ," he wrote on an Instagram pic of the girl rocking a black pants, a striped t-shirt, and a denim jacket.
The proud father of three shared back in September how much his daughter means to him after receiving the Harlem Fashion Row 360 Award.
He took Zhuri on stage with him and, after reminiscing about his career and philanthropical efforts, he revealed how much the 4-year-old had been part of his inspiration to become a better man:
“Three years ago, this bright spot right here happened to our family. And not only did she change me, she’s made me a better person. A more dedicated person, a stronger person. I guess a more sensitive person that realized that I have so much more of a responsibility to women in general. So, thank you, Zhuri.”
The adorable girl was featured on LeBron’s #Strongest campaign to promote his line of shoes for women, where she was dubbed as “The Future.”
