London: Jada Pinkett Smith has put aside her musical ambitions to help her daughter Willow launch her own career as a singer.
The `Nutty Professor` star has always dreamed of pursuing a career as a singer and even fronted rock band Wicked Wisdom in 2002, Contactmusic reported.
But the actress admits she`s put down the microphone to help her nine-year-old daughter record and release her debut album.
"I have always had a love for music, always, always, and always. I probably started to pursue it a little late in life. But it was always a passion of mine. I had always been too afraid to venture into music, but I decided when I was about 30 to just go for it. I started a metal band called Wicked Wisdom. I toured and I loved it," Jada said.
"But soon after, my kids` careers started taking off, so I sacrificed it. I am pleased to say my daughter, Willow, will be putting out an album soon and I look forward to enjoying music through her creations. So I am excited about that, and she`s pretty awesome," she added.
