Childish Gambino Meets The Adorable Girl Scout Who Sang ‘Redbone’ To Sell Cookies

Entertainer Donald Glover, AKA Childish Gambino in the rap world, appeared on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert Thursday and got a pleasant surprise.

Glover is the man behind the Grammy Award-winning hit “Redbone,” which captivated the heart of a young Girl Scout in Atlanta.

In the midst of trying to sell her Girl Scout cookies, Charity Joy and her Father Seymore Harrison Jr. sang a cover of “Redbone” last February, and it was one of the cutest things in 2018 so far.

With Glover being a guest on the Late Show, Stephen Colbert decided to fly in the young girl and her father to meet the the song’s original author.

Glover was excited to see young Joy, and bought out the 113 boxes of cookies left to reach her goal. They all handed out boxes to the delighted audience now in possession of those dangerously satisfying cookies.

Girl Scout And Dad Remix ‘Redbone’, Go Viral, Crush Fundraising Goal

“Now stay woke, buy these cookies.”

That’s the message behind a viral cover of Childish Gambino’s Redbone, sung by Seymore Harrison Jr. and his Girl Scout daughter, Charity Joy. The two created a video of them remixing the song to help Charity sell boxes of Girl Scout cookies.

According to FOX News, Charity wanted to sell more than 1,300 boxes so that she and her family could get a trip to Disney. Charity’s mom, Patrice Harrison, reportedly said that “She had been to Disney this past summer but I became [extremely] ill while there and was hospitalized and my husband was out of town so she wanted to reach her goal to go as a family.”

Thanks to the Girl Scout Redbone remix, Charity has easily surpassed her goal, and needs just a couple hundred more to hit 5,000 boxes sold. That milestone will help her and her troop “learn and grow,” according to Charity’s page on the Girl Scouts website. She wants to “learn to get rid of the box and change the game when it comes to cookie sales.”

Those that want to help Charity’ campaign exceed the next milestone can buy cookies off of her page. You’ll need to buy four or more boxes of cookies, which cost $4-$6 each.
