Every once in a while, a clip pops up of a musician doing something when they’re younger and we get to take a trip through time and see how much they’ve grown. The most memorable one for me is definitely seeing Sia perform on a 1997 episode of Home & Away, but this one is definitely strong competition.
In 2003, Bob Dylan wrote and directed Masked & Anonymous, a pretty unsuccessful film about “a singer, whose career has gone on a downward spiral, and is forced to make a comeback to the performance stage for a benefit concert.” In this clip, a young girl, the one and only Tinashe, daughter to a “Mrs. Brown”, is introduced by none other than John Goodman (“Uncle Sweetheart” – what a name), and covers Dylan’s classic The Times They Are a-Changin’ in front of Bob himself.
It’s a huge change from what we’re used to from Tinashe nowadays. The U.S pop-queen has just released the sexy and jumpy All Hands on Deck, and before that, her soulful Amethyst EP.
It’s always nice to see where the people we listen to have come from – and for Tinashe, who we interviewed earlier this year, you can hear the strength in her voice when she was only 10 years old.
