Every individual is blessed with a unique talent, so you just need to discover it, nurture it and amaze the world with your talent. Robert Townsend discovered his talent in acting, believed in it and pursued his dream of becoming a part of the show business.
And amazingly, talented daughter of Robert is walking in the path of his father as well. She has perplexed people with her talent. So what amazing thing has surprised the people? Let’s find out.
Robert Townsend’s Amazing Daughter!
Multi-talent Robert Townsend has a 23 years old daughter, Skylar Townsend, who is famous as Skye Townsend and has been surprising people with her spot-on impersonations of Beyonce. Impersonation is hard to do, and very few achieve perfection as she has.
She imitates Beyonce perfectly, and posts the videos via Instagram which startles many, but how did the impersonation start?
On July 25, 2014, Skye posted mash up video and shared the journey which began back in 2006. She loved the way Beyonce talked, so she started imitating her and made silly videos which initiated her imitating career.
But Skylar never thought it would turn out as big as it did. Although she is good at imitating, she does not want to remain a YouTube sensation. She feels that she is an artist and wants to be known as an actress and a singer too.
Lol repost. This video is a mash up of some old vines. I began posting videos impersonating Beyonce when I was thirteen on YouTube in '06. I remember loving the way she talked and hadn't seen anyone try so I started making silly videos. That began my entire career (even doe I still ain't shit). Got me in the doors of every major TV network and I will always remember watching my first video hit a million. Recently this voice is like "a thing". It's time to retire doing these videos lol. I am an artist and want to be known for being an amazing singer and actress. I don't want to be a "YouTube sensation" but an icon. I'm not in competition with anyone to be the best Beyonce impersonator. From day one, it was all in good fun. So thank you all for the love on my Beyonce posts from '06 to now. Never thought it would turn into what it did. That is so crazy. But... I knew it would come to this. ???? #BeyHivefolife #stoptaggingmeinallthesedamnvideosofotherpeople
Making someone smile and laugh is considered as the most difficult art. And who had thought a hobby of Skye would be so famous and entertain people and become the reason for smile and laughter in many faces.
