Janelle Monae Brings Her Talent and Style to “Sesame Street”

January 16, 2014  |  

I’m so happy Janelle Monae is being introduced to a new generation of tiny fans. The Electric Lady just finished filming her “Sesame Street” episode. One of the main songs from the show is “The Power of Yet”, a keep on trying anthem.

The Cover Girl said it’s been a dream of hers to be a guest on the classic kids’ show. “I’m here because I am teaching everybody on Sesame Street the importance and the power of ‘yet’,” Monae said. “Never, ever, ever give up because there’s so much power in ‘yet’.”

Even Abby Cadabby, one of the adorable Sesame puppets, gave Janelle Monae a few good words. “She has a beautiful spirit and she really gives from the heart and I think everybody can tell that.” It looks like it’ll be a great episode, but it doesn’t hit the air until September, so we just have to content ourselves with this clip for now.
