Willow Smith

Full Name: Willow Smith
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA
Birthday: October 31, 2000

Much like her parents, Willow Smith has made a name for herself in both the music and film industries. Born to Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith on October 31, 2000 in L.A., the precocious young star made her acting debut in 2007’s I Am Legend (opposite her father).

In 2008, she starred in Kit Kittredge: An American Girl. That same year, Willow also lent her voice to the animated film Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa.

Willow released her debut single, “Whip My Hair,” under Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation record label in late 2010. The song peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard charts.

The multi-talented child star is also a dedicated humanitarian: she and older brothers Jaden and Trey are ambassadors for Hasbro’s Project Zambia, which provides assistance for Zambian children orphaned by AIDS.
