UCLA gymnast Margzetta Frazier was surprised before meeting with Utah on the weekend.
The Bruce junior turned his head, set a routine for Janet Jackson’s music, and gained social media buzz.
Jackson expressed his appreciation to Frazier, praising her for incorporating Jackson’s dance moves into the music. She posted a video of the call on Instagram.
Janet Jackson: “I think you are incredible”
Jackson told Frazier: “A friend sent me this video. It̵7;s a video about you and your daily activities.” “When I watched it, I started crying. I thank God so much that God asked me to do it. And gave it to me, and saw the work I did-the younger generation still enjoys it as much as I do, and still does it 35 years later.
“I think it’s very important to say thank you… because you inspired me. You really inspired me. Thank you very much for your inspiration. I think you are incredible.”
Jackson asked Frazier to teach her to fall
Frazier responded crying, and thanked Jackson for his inspiration. Jackson then told her that she choreographed the dance.
“The routine you did was great,” Jackson continued. “To learn these steps? You did it perfectly. Often, someone took the wrong step here or there. You did it perfectly.”
Jackson also asked Frazier to go through the course before planning to meet in person. Between the 54-year-old artist and the 20-year-old college athlete, that moment moved her music.
Jackson’s FaceTime call was not the first time she praised Fraser. Earlier this month, she retweeted a video of Frazier’s regular show, which began with Jackson’s 1986 hit single “Nasty.” “#ILuvIT” Jackson wrote.
Frazier later told Access Hollywood that she wanted someone from the Jackson team to call, but she didn’t know that she would receive news from Jackson directly.
Fraser said, “This is the woman with a scarf, dark shadow and mask.” “I’m like oh, I know who this is.”
She said that until she heard her own voice, she was determined to be Jackson.
“When did you receive the Hero’s FaceTime call?”
