Beyoncé encourages 7-year-old who has perfect pitch after hearing girl’s ‘Texas Hold ‘Em’ cover

Zoë Erianna, who has competed on "America's Got Talent," received flowers and an encouraging note after the Grammy winner caught wind of her fully produced cover of the country hit.

Beyoncé has given her stamp of approval to a 7-year-old girl who created a fully produced cover of her current single, “Texas Hold ‘Em.”

People reported that after creating the cover without any sheet music, young singer Zoë Erianna — who competed on Season 18 of “America’s Got Talent” — received a large bouquet and a note of encouragement from the superstar performer.

After listening to Beyoncé’s No. 1 country song in their car around two weeks ago, young Zoë’s parents posted an Instagram video showing that their daughter was interested in engaging in her own “Texas Hold ‘Em” playing.

She attempts to replicate the banjo-heavy production on a keyboard in the family’s home recording studio, but it takes a lot of work. 

“Although Zoë has perfect pitch, timing banjo style rhythm and fingerpicking on keyboard can be a challenge,” her parents wrote in the post’s caption.

However, the video concludes with Zoë self-producing an instrumental version of the song that sounds almost exactly like the version Beyoncé will feature on her upcoming album, “Cowboy Carter.”

After seeing the video, Beyoncé sent Zoë a beautiful bouquet of white flowers on Tuesday from the Bouquet Shop in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania.

“Your rendition of ‘Texas Hold’ Em’ brought me so much joy,” she shared in a signed note with the bouquet. “You are brilliant, please keep it up.”
