January 25 was a magical night in New York City as ESSENCE gathered some of biggest names in entertainment to honor cultural icon Missy Elliott for the 9th annual ESSENCE Black Women In Music event, presented in part by the Recording Academy and sponsored by Lincoln Motor Company and AT&T. 

But before the tributes, the kind words, the surprise appearance from Janet Jackson and the empowering acceptance speech from Missy herself, attendees took a few moments to grace the red carpet for a few photo ops and a little fun. Check out the video above to see rapper Remy Ma, ‘Orange Is The New Black’ star Danielle Brooks, singer Tank, ” actor ‘Insecure’ Broderick Hunter, actress Teyonah Parrish and a few more of our Hollywood faves give us their renditions of their favorite Missy lyrics.
