AMHERST, N.Y. - They call her "Joy the Drummer" and she started playing as child in church. Now she plays drums for superstar singer Beyonce.
"l'm a football lover, football fan, but having your baby sister be a part of these events just takes you over the edge, and it's very exciting. I wish my mother was here to see it. She's here in spirit but definitely a new twist to the Super Bowl season this year for me," said Edtasha New, Venzella Joy Williams' older sister.
Williams has been on tour with Beyonce and Jay Z and played at the White House for Michelle Obama's 50th birthday celebration. Her sister said she's doing pretty good for a little girl from the suburbs.
"She went to Dewitt Clinton Elementary School down in what they call lower town in Lockport. So she had very humble beginnings before she moved to Buffalo, now out in L.A. and now with Beyonce. Started out in Lockport, yes," said New.
Joy also attended Nardin Academy and Canisius College before moving to Los Angeles, where she continues to thrive as a professional drummer.
