Apart from singing, Blue showcased her acting when she did a cameo in the video for the song, “Spirit,” the first track released from the album. She was a natural sharing screen time with her mother at the beginning of the music video. What a talented girl she truly is. 

TINA SPEAKS OF COMING FULL CIRCLE

Tina also spoke about how her family has come full circle with the Disney classic. She recalled Beyonce and her watching the 1994 version more than 20 times and for the singer to be part of the remake and share it with her own children is remarkable.

"I was very excited because when she was a kid we must have watched that show 20, 25 times. So, I'm just so excited for her daughter to be able to see this, her kids and it's very exciting. It's a beautiful movie. Really beautiful."

“The Lion King” ruled the box office on opening weekend earning an estimated $180 million according to Variety. It now holds the record of the second highest-grossing opening in 2019 following “Incredibles 2.”
