Sassy Girl Dancing to ‘Respect’ Is the Ultimate Child Star
This girl deserves your R-E-S-P-E-C-T.
Check out 6-year-old Johanna Colon, who has become a star for her performance while dancing to Aretha Franklin’s classic song, “Respect” during a recent recital. The North Carolina girl has earned viral sensation status for showing off some serious diva-tude and confidently owning the routine. (And how about those poor girls dancing with her? Talk about being in the shadows!)
The video was initially uploaded to Facebook and has since been viewed an astonishing 35 million times.
Johanna’s mother tells Today her daughter simply has no idea what all the fuss is about:
We told Johanna about it, and she’s excited, but she really doesn’t totally understand. She was more excited that she had her last day of school and that she got ice cream for having a great report card.”
She’s turned into such a star that she should totally get another cone, right?
You can see Johanna’s entire breathtaking performance below. Now, if someone can arrange for her to dance while Franklin sings “Respect” live, we may finally have the recipe for breaking the internet (sorry, Kim).
