Rumer, who has proved her singing chops with weekly performances the past few weeks at Jason Scoppa’s Thursday night Sessions show at the hip Sayers Club, finally scored her own show, and according to an eyewitness, she rocked it!
“People were absolutely blown away,” the source tells RadarOnline.com. “Nobody expected her to be that good. Everyone just assumed she was up there because she’s Demi Moore and Bruce Willis’ daughter, but she has real talent, that girl has some serious pipes on her!”
Rumer performed totally solo, covering High Low Middle by My Brightest Diamond, I Cant Stand the Rain by Ann Peebles, Age by Lianne La Havas and Sitting on the Dock of the Bay by Sara Bareilles, and her biggest fan of the night? Soon to be ex-step-dad, Ashton!
“Ashton came on his own and he was there from the beginning to the end,” the source says. “He provided a real cool, unassuming, supportive and stable presence for Rumer, who was obviously a little nervous.
“Ashton and Rumer had a short talk before she went on stage and you could tell he was pepping her up and building her confidence and then when she started singing his whole face lit up. He was obviously really, really proud of her and was smiling throughout her performance. I even saw him singing along at one point.
“As soon as Rumer finished she headed straight to Ashton. He gave her a huge hug and then they were huddled together talking for the rest of the night. Despite what’s happening with Demi, it’s obvious he and Rumer are still very close, it was really sweet to see.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Demi is currently resting at home and getting ready to return to work after a stint in rehab to treat her addiction to prescription pills and her eating disorder.
