Emily Bear

Emily Bear, 13, and her mentor Quincy Jones appear on "The Queen Latifah Show."YouTube

For most kids, taking piano is a chore their parents sign them up for. But ever since the age of 3, Emily Bear has absolutely loved playing the piano. By age eight, she could play over 350 songs, which led to big performances at the White House and Carnegie Hall.It doesn't hurt that her mentor is producer Quincy Jones. Oh, and did we mention she can sing too?

 

Now, you can see Bear's amazing skills for yourself this Friday at the Iridium. Watch the video below of her performing on "The Queen Latifah Show" to get a sneak peek at what you'd experience and head to ticketweb.com to purchase tickets.
