Much like her Foo Fighters father Dave Grohl, Violet Grohl has proven herself to be a remarkable performer. She has been performing for several years now, with one of her earliest performances involving her and her dad covering an Adele song for a benefit event in 2018.

She has also teamed up with her dad on some Foo Fighters songs, having performed on their 2020 track “Making a Fire” and “Show Me How,” the latter being a song from the band’s latest and Grammy-nominated album But Here We Are.

More recently, Violet took to the stage with David Bowie pianist Mike Garson for a concert in Los Angeles this past Saturday; while she was there performing Bowie covers, at one point during the evening, Violet was joined on stage by her dad.

Per footage that has been uploaded online, Violet and Dave performed a couple of covers together: one being Foo Fighters’ “Show Me How,” and one being the Nirvana classic “Heart-Shaped Box,” which she has covered in the past with the surviving members of the band.

For their performance of “Heart-Shaped Box,” Dave is seen playing on drums as Violet sings; for “Show Me How,” the father and daughter stand together at the microphone and sing the track together.

Let alone that it’s awesome to hear Violet perform these songs, it’s additionally heart-warming to see her team up with her dad for them.

Below you will find videos of Violet and Dave Grohl performing together.
