A Tiny Dancer Stuns The World, Demands R-E-S-P-E-C-T

When Elissa M. Col?n uploaded a video of her adorable?six-year-old daughter Johanna dancing to Aretha Franklin’s 1967 hit ?Respect? in early June, she likely didn’t expect that within a month it would be viewed more than 17 million times.

Johanna’s mom told?TODAY.com that her?little girl had never heard of Aretha but when she heard “Respect” for the first time,?she said, ?Ooh, she’s got a lot of sass, mommy.?

Indeed! And so do you, Johanna. Enjoy this video. I can’t stop watching it.
