The little girl who used to kill it in Missy Elliott‘s music videos back in the day may be all grown up, but she certainly hasn’t forgotten the woman who gave her her big break.
Alyson Stoner, 21, gained notoriety for her exceptional dancing abilities in Missy videos like “Work It” and “Gossip Folks” at such a young age. Today (Feb. 12) she dropped off a tribute video which features a dance routine done by some of Missy’s biggest hits. Stoner has also been a backup dancer for artists such as Eminem, Outkast and Will Smith. But dancing isn’t the only thing she’s good at.
Stoner has also acted in The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and Cheaper by the Dozen. She is also a singer, and most recently dropped her single “Sweater Weather.” Watch the tribute video above, and check out her music below.
