This Woman’s Cover Of Missy Elliot’s ‘Work It’ Is Literally All You Need To See Today

Thanks to social media and YouTube, everyday people take our favorite songs and put their own spin on them with covers. Many times, covers are teens sitting in their bedroom strumming an acoustic guitar and singing into their MacBook Air.
But, there are those rare moments in time when we get these very special individuals who make our day that much better with their own, unique, incredible renditions. Like, Mary.

Mary decided to throw an epic park performance of Missy Elliot’s hit song “Work It,” and, it’s probably the greatest thing we’ve ever seen. Mary posted it on her Facebook page, and we are so, so grateful. So are the 4.3 million people who have seen it.

Fun times at Goddard Park!Feel free to share 😉 Warning: explicit lyrics lol 😉
