This vintage clip of a young girl named Beyoncé Knowles performing a song from The Wiz was uploaded in 2013, but is making the rounds once again — probably thanks to NBC’s recent live version.
Skip ahead to the 50 second mark to see tiny Bey killing it in a sparkly Dorothy outfit. There are some audio issues at first, but about 30 seconds later, you’ll be able to hear her more clearly. Even at 7, Bey is brimming with confidence and charisma.
“She asked me backstage if I’d sign something for her,” the host says after Bey’s performance, “but frankly I better get her to sign something for me now before she starts charging for it.”
