Monroe Cannon, the daughter of global superstars Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, has made her modeling debut in a new fashion campaign for OshKosh B’gosh.
Monroe is the new face of OshKosh B’gosh‘s back-to-school campaign titled “Today is Someday,” — and she absolutely nails her debut.
In the video, Monroe stars as a 10-year-old Mariah.
“Someday it’s going to be different,” Monroe says. “The melodies that live in my head… Someday they’ll live at the top of the charts. The songs in my heart will touch millions of hearts. Artist of the year, artist of the decade, artist of the millennium. But the meaning is in inspiring generations of little girls to hit their high note. How’s that for a daydream?”
The campaign also pays tribute to late boxer Muhammad Ali and Atlien’s OutKast.
“With ‘Today is Someday,’ OshKosh B’gosh spotlights notable trailblazers as children in a series of powerful vignettes celebrating their confidence and determination,” reads the press release. “Viewers will hear inspiring inner monologues from Ali, Carey and Outkast as children, dressed in OshKosh B’gosh, encouraging the next generation to dream boldly about who they’ll become someday.”
Mariah, whose mother is of Irish descent and father was African-American and African-Venezuelan, has often spoken about the impact her difficult childhood has had on her life.
But being a mother has helped the Grammy award-winning singer to heal.
“They help to heal me every day,” Carey said to Oprah Winfrey of her twins Moroccan and Monroe in an interview. “Every time we have a moment that feels real and authentic and genuine and it’s them loving me unconditionally.” She added that another essential in her life beyond her twins comes from her connection to her audience. “My fans have been the only ones that I felt I got unconditional love from … I had this connection in a way that people feel like that they know you, my fans really feel like they’re the only ones who have ever know me. I feel that way.”
