The apple sure doesn’t fall far from the tree.
Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon who goes by ‘Lola’ stole the spotlight on Sunday in her high school’s production of Grease.
The 17-year-old student in a shoulder-length dark hair or wig showed off her dancing skills as she took on the role of the ballsy and sarcastic leader of the Pink Ladies, Betty Rizzo at LaGuardia High School in New York City.
The high school student also demonstrated her strong singing abilities when she performed classic tunes from the 1972 musical including “Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee” and “There Are Worse Things I Could Do.”
“[She] was really good,” an eyewitness US Weekly of Lola’s performance. “She is a great singer, dancer, and actress and seemed completely comfortable on the stage. She also seemed like she was having a lot of fun with the part.”
“Lourdes had comic chops and confidence on stage,” the critic said. “She delivered Rizzo’s zingers with hands on her hips and a lot of attitude.”
According to witness accounts, her Mama the Queen Of Pop Madonna watched her daughter along with Lola’s father Cuban fitness trainer Carlos Leon, both kept a low-profile though it was reported the pop superstar couldn’t contain herself and cheered the cast on throughout the show.
In the show’s program, Lola’s bio gave thanks to her parents “with all of her heart” for giving her guidance and love and supporting her passions wholeheartedly.
