The year 2011 was filled with surprises and debuts. Many adults released new projects and several children advanced in the entertainment industry as well. Here is a list of celebrity kids that America should be on the lookout for in 2012.

Selah Marley

This young lady has launched her modeling career and aspires to sing like her mother Lauryn Hill.

Willow Smith

The 11-year-old singer has already released a hit single and anticipates her newest song “Fireball” to be the next great thing. Willow’s album Knees & Elbows will debut in April 2012.

Actor and singer, Jaden has made waves this year. He and friend Justin Bieber recently recorded their rendition of “Thinking About You” by Frank Ocean. The 13-year-old made his debut as an actor in The Pursuit of Happyness.

The singing trio recently embarked on the Scream Tour and recorded a music video to accompany their single “Gucci This, Gucci That.” Zonnique, a.k.a. Star, is T.I. and Tameka “Tiny” Cottle’s daughter. Both T.I. and Tiny have been active contributors to the singing group.

Diggy Simmons

At 16, Diggy Simmons is bringing positivity back to the music industry and society at large. Simmons recently released his music video “Do It Like You” which encourages young ladies to be themselves, and spoke against bullying at a charity event. There’s no stopping Mr. Do-Gooder.

Jacob Latimore

He sang at the BET Special Christmas concert, performed on the Scream Tour, and is set to guest star in BET’s new show “Reed Between the Lines.” Jacob Latimore,15, has been a busy kid and shows no sign of slowing down in 2012.

    Hello there, You have done an excellent job. I’ll certainly digg it and personally recommend to my friends. I’m sure they’ll be benefited from this web site.

    I don’t think a lot of young girls or teenage girls like the OMG Girlz. The people I know that went to the scream tour thought that they were a bit too much, and judging by the pictures of them they are. They’re young girls with some talent that should dress that way.

    Darn! What happened to the good ole days when the children of celebrities were just allowed to be just that…children unitl they were at the decision making age to determine whether or not they would follow in their parents footsteps. Everyone wants to create a dynasty! What about a family?

    @shanice U can’t say that. Just because Astro got to spit his realest hardest lyrics on X Factor every week on national TV doesn’t make him better than Diggy, as he grinded putting out mixtapes/freestyles killing it for years and is now getting a lot of popularity and attention this year because his labels pushing singles that are GREAT songs but not what you should judge skill wise because singles usually aren’t any artists best lyrical work. If you look back in the BKC’S archives of him (which made me me love him) he’s proved himself to be an amazing MC. He’s doing what he has to do now to put out an album and he’s doing a great job moving into the new year doing that. Go Diggy! And all the rest of the kids on this list!

    • Shanice December 31, 2011 at 2:12 pm

      I like Diggy’s mixtapes. Have a lot of his songs on my laptop and I adore his new single. But lyrically I think Astro is better. He’s been grinding before XFactor as well.

  • Faye December 30, 2011 at 7:07 pm

    What about Justin Dior Combs?

  • Angel*eyes December 30, 2011 at 6:18 pm

    I hope this will be Selah’s year. She is so beautiful. I think she looks just like her mother

    I really don’t like a lot of rap but I’m looking forward to see what Astro does. Lil homie is definitely dope. Probably better than Diggy

  • Tami December 30, 2011 at 3:52 pm

    Looking forward to hearing for these talented kiddies!! And wow she favors Willow. Or is it just me lol

  • Fraiser Crane December 30, 2011 at 2:28 pm
