This Father-Daughter Duo Belting Out Chaka Khan Like It's Nobody's Business Is Bringing Some Much-Needed Joy To Our Timelines

An Instagram video featuring a father and daughter singing "I'm Every Woman" has racked up nearly two million views.

Cornell Conaway and his daughter Brooke Monroe Conaway thought the excitement over their fun rendition of Chaka Khan's "I'm Every Woman" had come and gone after they filmed it last year. But thanks to a retweet from Missy Elliott, the video has gained a legion of new fans.

The video, which shows Brooke belting out the hit and Cornell serving as her hype man, has racked up nearly two million views as of Tuesday.

The fun video got a lot of love when Cornell first posted it, but it hit another level when the "Work It" singer tweeted it to her millions of Twitter followers on June 18.


Cornell explained how his young daughter was able to memorize all the words in the song and produce such a powerful rendition in an interview with Today

"I have been filming her since we brought her home from the hospital. One particular day, we were going to my mom's house. We were listening to Run DMC 'Proud to be Black.' I challenged her and said, 'I bet you can't learn these lyrics.' She did it, and with so much tenacity," he said.

"Our main purpose is to give people good vibes and brighten up their day. We get inspired because we have so many people sending us messages saying we have inspired them," Cornell added. 


People online loved the video, especially considering many were celebrating Father's Day this past weekend. 



People thanked Cornell for teaching his daughter about classic hits. 






Brooke, who is now 8 years old but was 7 when the video was filmed last year, spoke to Today about her singing and her father. 

"I love this video because me and my daddy made it and it was so much fun. It was a feel-good song and I love it. I love all of it," Brooke said.

In her interview, Brooke added that she has received heartfelt messages from people as far away as Brazil, London, Australia and Ireland. 

“It makes me feel happy that they're happy," she said.
