Singer/actor Jamie Foxx has been making the most of his time during the COVID-19 pandemic, making new music with his 11-year-old daughter Annalise Bishop.
Jamie Foxx had Annalise with his ex Kristin Grannis and also has an older daughter, 26-year-old Corrine Foxx with ex Connie Kline. As it turns out, Annalise is a talented musician like her father, as she plays the piano “all the time” and helps her dad with his music.
“We did this rendition of “Grandma’s Hands,” not too long ago,” said Foxx, referring to his a cappella performance of Bill Withers’ song he put on Instagram in May. “So we cleaned that up and… we got some really heartfelt, like, you know, back up against the piano music. So, we’ve been working on some stuff together, creating and stuff,” he continued. “So, you know, during this quarantine, we’re going to drop that on you.”
In addition to making music with his daughter, Jamie Foxx has been making moves in his acting career. He recently starred in the Netflix film Project Power, which came out on August 14, and he will also star in the Disney film Soul, which was originally going to be released in June 2020 but was moved to November 20, 2020. To add, Foxx is producing and will also feature in Netflix’s upcoming film They Cloned Tyrone. He is also producing and starring in Netflix’s upcoming father-daughter comedy series Dad Stop Embarrassing Me, which is based on Jamie Foxx’s relationship with Corrine, who is also a producer on the show.
If that wasn’t enough, Jamie Foxx and his producing partner Datari Turner recently signed an overall deal with Sony Pictures Entertainment to develop and produce feature films. Their first project with Sony Pictures will be an untitled action-thriller that Foxx will also star in. Sanford Panitch, the President of Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group, said of Foxx in a statement:
“Not only is Jamie Foxx one of the most talented and decorated actors in the world he is also an idea machine. As a company, we have been lucky to work with Jamie in Baby Driver and Amazing Spiderman, but his creativity as a producer is his most exciting role yet,” said Panitch. “Jamie is wildly creative, funny, and brilliant; he walks the walk, he talks the talk and we are so proud to be in this partnership with Jamie and Datari. We already have a few projects secretly going and this is only the beginning.”
