World, meet Missy Elliott's "funky white sister," Mary Halsey.
Goddard Park's karaoke queen has had the Internet going crazy with her rendition of Missy's 2002 hit "Work It." The Rhode Island native came for Missy's hip-hop throne as she effortlessly performed the rap classic with an animal horn in one hand and a mic in the other while at a cookout last month.
"Yeah yeah yeah, this is my second time exclusive here at Goddard park at the cool cat karaoke. Missy's funky white sista is in the parkkkkkk," Mary began her performance before jumping on the "Work It" beat.
It can't go without mentioning, the viral sensation's performance was equipped with a tiptoeing, cup of noodles eating, back up dancer! Mary's friend nearly stole the show as she went in and out of the video eating a cup of noodles while Mary performed.
The performance is such Internet gold, Missy even praised Mary on Twitter.
"I just found out I have a FUNKY WHITE SISTER😳😩😂🤣," the Grammy-award winning rapper wrote alongside the video. "forreal doe😂🤣& she brought her home girl with her from da hood that keep tip toeing in the background with a plate of food🤣 yo I’m done!😂 but she straight killed “Work It” sound effects & all🙌🏾 I love it🔥🙌🏾."
If it wasn't obvious already, Mary is anything but new to this. Her friend later confirmed on Twitter that Mary is a seasoned performer. "She used to be at my friend's restaurant every Friday night for karaoke and perform this," she wrote. "She'd get the whole room crazy every time! She's a sweetheart. Go, Mary!"
Mary's performance already has over 7 million views, and she only posted it to her Facebook two weeks ago!
