It’s the American ideal that every parent wants the best for their child. If a child has a unique gift, whether it be singing, dancing, acting, making others laugh, or something else entirely, they probably want nothing more than to be famous on social media.
As a result of the abundance of undiscovered talent and fierce rivalry in today’s entertainment industry, many individuals may wonder why they should bother creating original content when they can simply upload a video to YouTube. It could possibly stand out. Consider how many teenagers have been found thanks to their online videos. If they’re lucky or skilled enough, the video will go viral, resulting in offers from famous people to appear on their shows and be interviewed by the kid. The kid goes on to become an instant hit with online audiences.
That’s how everything went down for Rosie and Sophia Grace, too. In a popular video, their aunt had them sing a Nicki Minaj song. After Ellen DeGeneres caught wind of them, she invited them to perform on her show. You wouldn’t even recognise them if you saw them now. If you happened to pass them on the street, you probably wouldn’t give them a second glance.
It Turns out That Sophia and Rosie Are Relatives
While Sophia Grace Brownlee was born in April of 2000, camera-shy Rosie McClelland didn’t make her debut until September of 2006.
Both girls share a common ancestor: the English county of Essex. The girls had a peaceful upbringing, according to Sophia’s father. He goes on to say that his daughter was a quiet student at first, but that she began to open up and even start singing in the family after a few years had passed.
The guy in charge of Sophia’s career is her father, a former party MC who comes from a musical background. It’s obvious that you can’t separate the fruit from the tree. The father further toots his own horn by saying that he was the one who first exposed Sophia to rap. Absolutely endearing! Sophia Grace and Rosie both attended the same school, which was a mere ten-minute commute from their respective residences.
After their appearance on Ellen, their friends and family were overjoyed to welcome them back with open arms and expressions of affection. They had finally made it big time. Contrary to popular belief, Sophia preferred the spotlight on stage to the classroom.
Over 52 Million People Have Watched Their Video on YouTube
They were just having a nice family outing when suddenly Aunt Daniella had an epiphany. She opted to record the females on film. Later, she raided the dress-up bin for tiaras and tutus, which quickly became the girls’ signature appearance. Wow, what loving mothers and aunts! The original plan was for featuring only Sophia Grace on the clip. They added Rosie as an afterthought because they had so much fun hanging out together. All Rosie did for the video was the dance for her mom.
What followed was a unique take on a trend that has become commonplace in the YouTube era in which we live. Aunt Sophia uploaded the video to YouTube on September 19, 2011.
At Ellen’s 60th Birthday Party, They Showed Up
The lovely duo remembered to wish Ellen DeGeneres a happy birthday on January 26 of this year. They wished Ellen, the popular talk show presenter, a happy 60th birthday.
DeGeneres was moved by the girls’ thoughtful note to her, and admitted that seeing the girls all grown up made her feel a little bit old, because she knows so many people who have children. Sophia Grace, now 15, and her cousin Rosie, then age 11, reminisced about their time on the show in a video they recently released.
Rosie reminisced about her favourite part, when Ellen slimed the girls, expressing her enjoyment despite the chill. Sophia said that she thought it was hilarious when Ellen gave them wigs in the style of Nicki Minaj. In addition to Justin Timberlake and Kristen Bell, other famous people got to wish the daytime talk show host a happy birthday.
They Were the Stars of Their Own Movie
A film titled Sophia Grace & Rosie’s Royal Adventure starred the two young actresses. The plot of the 2014 film centres on their boss and friend Ellen sending them to Switzelvania to report on the impending coronation of a new queen.
While there are no reviews for this film on Rotten Tomatoes, the average user rating on IMDb is a respectable 4.2 out of 10. This is a respectable score for a debut film.
According to TMZ, the ladies’ movie contracts include provisions for potential sequels. The girls, according to their contracts, were paid well for their roles in the film.
In Other Words, They’ve Written Books
Charles Dickens, beware! Though neither Sophia Grace nor Rosie has completed high school or even a writing course (maybe), they have written not one but two books! The news was first broken on Ellen’s show.
Reviews of the book have been uniformly positive. A number of mothers felt that their children could read and understand the book with little trouble. The plot of the book is around a couple and their quest to throw a perfect tea party by utilising their imaginations to determine who should be invited. Making their room look like a castle fit for a princess, arranging catering, and decorating for a party are all part of their well-thought-out plan.
Who Sophia Grace Turned Into the Judge
Broadway World claims that Sophia Grace was a judge on the ABC reality show The Toy Box last year. In the show, a group of young celebrity judges are children, and the eager toy creators present their original ideas to them.
