For most high school students, the only excitement that happens during lunch is seeing your friends and maybe getting the better slice of pizza. However, Malcolm X Shabazz High School in Newark, New Jersey seems to be doing things a little bit differently. As if having a DJ playing some R&B classics during lunch isn’t enough, back in 2014 the students were met with a surprise visit from Erykah Badu.
In some recently surfaced footage from Badu’s visit, she can be seen just casually strolling into the cafeteria as several wide-eyed students slowly begin to realize what’s going on. As the DJ begins to play her single “On & On,” Badu grabs the mic for an impromptu performance—along with a few items off the students’ plates.
Watch the footage above.
