Greta Thunberg may soon not be the only “star” in the family.
DailyMail reports Greta Thunberg’s younger sister is launching her singing career with a performance as a young Edith Piaf in a musical alongside her opera singer mother.
The climate crusader’s ‘super talented’ sibling Beata Ernman will play the late French singer in a show which opens in Stockholm later this year.
Beata, 14, has previously joined her sister on a climate march but has now chosen to follow in the footsteps of her mother, Malena Ernman.
Malena’s own career has been affected by Greta’s activism after the teenager persuaded her parents to give up flying.
‘I have been dancing and singing for as long as I can remember,’ Beata said as she prepares for the musical Forever Piaf, according to news agency DPA.
‘To be able to perform her immortal music is a dream come true,’ she said, referring to French singing legend Piaf.
Her mother Malena will play the older Piaf in the show, which will debut in Stockholm in September this year.
Greta Thunberg, who takes the surname of her father Svante Thunberg, said last year she was ‘so proud of my super talented sister’ as she shared one of her songs.
Beata also marched alongside her sister during one of Greta’s signature ‘Fridays for Future’ marches in Stockholm last year.
Svante Thunberg explained last year how the family had adopted a green lifestyle after Greta ‘fell ill’ and stopped eating.
Speaking during an edition of BBC Radio 4’s Today programme which was guest-edited by Greta, he said the family had made changes in order to ‘save’ their daughter.
