Kelly Clarkson‘s Las Vegas residency took a heartwarming turn as she invited her daughter, River Rose, and son, Remington, to join her on stage during a recent show. The Grammy-winning artist performed a touching duet of her 2015 hit “Heartbeat Song” with her 9-year-old daughter and later engaged in a mini dance party to “Whole Lotta Woman” with her 7-year-old son on Friday night, People reports.
This family affair brought back memories of when Beyoncé had famously brought out her daughter, Blue Ivy, on stage during her performances. However, the trend seems to be catching on as more celebrities with kids are sharing the spotlight with their little ones.
