The Oscar-winning actor and singer claims his younger sister, DeOndra Dixon, is the one who gave his life a perspective. If you ask Jamie Foxx who is the real star of the family, he will quickly point to his sister.
DeOndra was born with Down’s Syndrome, but it didn’t stop her from having an incredible life. In the interview with Today, Jamie Foxx revealed his sister taught him to love life and live to the fullest:
I learned how to live. Sometimes we get caught up in our world on the extras of everything — ‘Ah, the Mercedes is not the right color!’ And then you see this girl over here. ‘I just want to live. I want to dance. I want to love.’ She brings you back down to what life is.
DeOndra Dixon has been living with her big brother since graduating from the high school back in 2002. During all this time, they enjoy spending time with each other. She even danced with Jamie on the Grammys stage and appeared in the video for his song “Blame It.” She is a real star!
Jamie Foxx is sure DeOndra Dixon can do anything in this world and will achieve great results in future. In his interview with the Global Down Syndrome Foundation, Jamie Foxx said:
That she can live her life with no boundaries, like she’s living it now. There’s nothing she can’t do.
Jamie also revealed his sister is the one who makes life better and happier:
She has such a special quality, and she can light up a room. I don’t know where she gets it. It’s amazing.
The Academy Award-winning actor and Grammy Award-winning singer Jamie Foxx is proud of having such a wonderful sister. They indeed have a special bond!
