Jerry Rice is many things. He is the greatest wide receiver in NFL history. He is a three time Super Bowl Champion. He is a great self marketer. And he’s a dancing pioneer. A Dancing With The Stars pioneer that is. His high finish on the television show opened up the flood gates for guys like Emmitt Smith to reinvent Hammer Time and for Jason Taylor to look at Hollywood as a possible career after football. Don’t act like you don’t know.
But one thing that Jerry doesn’t do well is sing. Does anyone remember the commercial years ago in which he and his 49ers brethren went to a karaoke bar and Flash 80 busted out a terrible version of Stand By Your Man?
However, there’s someone in his family who can sing. Well, sort of.
Jerry Rice’s daughter Qui is a junior at Georgetown University and is now trying to make it as a pop star. She has a new single called Rev It Up featuring David Banner, with an album set to come out later this year. Based on the video, the young Miss Rice looks to be patterning herself after Janet Jackson, with the style of Ciara and the late Aaliyah thrown in as well.
The video is nicely done and it looks like Papa Rice probably put a little bit of that Hall Of Fame money into it. Qui is young, attractive, and though she doesn’t possess a fantastic voice, is serviceable on the mic, at least compared to other pop singers out there today.
If you’re looking for Jerry to make a cameo, he’s in it, but for maybe one second. Don’t blink.
The video isn’t on YouTube just yet, but it is on what looks to be Qui’s mom’s .mac account.
