Watch Rumer Willis Entertain and Charm Dad Bruce Willis and Instagram Followers Singing and Playing Piano


Rumer Willis has a great voice. I’ve seen her at Cafe Carlyle in New York, and on Broadway in “Chicago.” She spent an hour on Instagram Live the other night entertaining about 200 followers from the Willis-Demi Moore home in Idaho. Dad Bruce Willis was her live audience. Rumer accompanied herself on piano, and was totally charming. I give her props because it’s just not easy to have a career in the arts of any kind when each of your parents is a big movie star. I wish she’d cut an album up there and put it on iTunes. Her covers of these songs is terrific. And I love her patter.

PS Bruce’s wife Emma and their two daughters seem to have returned to Los Angeles without the “Die Hard” star. He remains in Idaho with Demi, their daughters, and boyfriends. Emma is very practical. This can’t be easy.

PS When I watched this live, Bruce was acknowledged toward the end. He packed it in around 10pm Friday night. The weird thing was, I was also watching Russell Simmons teach a yoga class from Bali simultaneously. It was 11:30am there the next day. I’ll try and upload the juxtaposition to YouTube later. What a small world– New York watching Idaho and Bali at the same time!
