This week's "Women Crushing It Wednesday" guest is Mookie Star – a singer, songwriter, actress, stylist and children's book author who hails from the DMV.

Mookie recently received the shout-out of a lifetime from none other than Missy Elliott. The rapper shared a video of Mookie singing with the caption, "I love to hear singers with unique tones and effortless runs ---- @1mookstar you better give us 1930’s style singing mixed with 2018 sauce okaaaaay----------------"
