*Quvenzhane Wallis graced the cover of Essence with Jamie Foxx for the magazine’s December issue. Both play the leads in a remake to the musical “Annie.”
Wallis and Foxx play the father-daughter duo — Daddy Warbucks and Annie — in this latest version of Annie produced by Jada Pinkett-Smith and Will Smith.
Foxx is already a well-known singer, dancer and all-around performer. But no one had any idea Wallis was also a talented singer.
“Yes, that’s me really singing,” Wallis said in the Essence cover story about how singing in “Annie,” which will open up in theaters on Friday, Dec. 19, 2014.
