Jaden Smith

The heir to the throne of Bel-Air turns 17 today and his future continues to shine brighter than ever. Jaden and his sister Willow just rocked London's Wireless Festival this past weekend alongside the likes of Drake, Nicki and Kendrick as he flexed the mic skills passed down from his pops.

He's also proved that he possesses Big Willie's acting chops with blockbuster films The Karate Kid and the Pursuit of Happyness under his belt, and he'll be starring in the upcoming Netflix original series The Get Down. In celebration of Jaden's born day, check out a few other child stars who have rocked the mic by singing or rapping and also took Hollywood by storm. — Michael Harris (@IceBlueVA)
