FaithTap Staff 5/17/2015
Joahnna Colon is only six years old, but already knows how to entertain a crowd giving them a dance they will remember for a long time. Her sassy performance of Aretha Franklin’s "Respect" was performed at a recite in Knightdale, North Carolina. Little Johanna has been taking dance lesson’s since she was two years old at Heather’s Dance Studio.
This was these girls first performance of this particular dance in front of over 400 people. Everyone in the crowd fell in love and Johanna ushered them all to get a standing ovation. Her Mom said she practiced very hard and was always asking her to play the song.
Of course Johanna didn’t know anything about Aretha Franklin, but when she learned about her from her Mom she said, "Oh, she’s got a lot of sass!" "Respect" became a hit for Aretha Franklin in 1967 and is number five on Rolling Stone’s List of the five hundred greatest songs of all time. Johanna hopes to be a famous dancer one day, and if she keeps this up, it looks like she’s well on her way. What a fun and sweet little entertainer she is. We hope to see lots more of her in the future!
