Before the surprise Wicked Wisdom performance, Willow Smith shared, “My mother was superwoman, she was a rock star, warrior and nurturer all in one. So unapologetically badass.”
Ahead of Mother’s Day, Willow reunited with her mother’s former Wicked Wisdom bandmates. The link up consisted of members Michael Anderson, Pocket Honore, Taylor Graves, and Ronald Bruner Jr.
“When I was, I wanna say about 3 or 4, I went on tour with my mom and her band Wicked Wisdom. Wicked Wisdom was lit. This is the music that I grew up around. My mother was superwoman, she was a rock star, warrior and nurturer all in one. So unapologetically badass,” Willow shared during yesterday’s Red Table Talk episode. “She was a rock star, and I was living for Wicked Wisdom.”
She also added, “I felt like it was only right for me to pay homage to a time in her life because she showed me what woman-ing up really is about, so for Mother’s Day, I’m about to reunite with some of my mom’s old band members to do one of my favorite songs by my mom, which is called ‘Bleed All Over Me.'”
That wasn’t all Willow had to say, she went on to express she hoped her mother felt “a tiny little bit of the gratitude and the love you have given me my entire life and continue to give me.”

The former bandmates and Willow performed as Jada and her mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris looked on in admiration. Jada also sang along to the energetic rock song. At one point she was even moved to tears.
Willow knows how to pull at our heartstrings, this was a beautiful moment. The underrated singer/songwriter and musician is currently gearing up to drop another album. If this gave us a glimpse of what’s to come, we’re here for it.
