A UCLA gymnast, who performed a routine solely to Janet Jackson hits, received one of the best phone calls of her life on Friday.
Moments after Margzetta Frazier debuted her routine, Jackson FaceTimed Frazier herself to thank the athlete for inspiring her.
“I just want to say thank you,” Jackson told Frazier on facetime. “Thank you for sharing your talent. It’s so beautiful to see you tumble. Really inspiring. It just inspired me to want to do more, and do better and be stronger. I loved it. Absolutely loved it.”
Shocked and holding back tears, Frazier thanks the singer, saying Jacksons’ kind words meant everything to her, People reported.
Jackson also informed Frazier that she would love to meet her someday and possibly get a personal tumbling lesson.
“I would one day love to learn how to tumble,” Jackson joked, “Hopefully, I won’t break anything!”
Frazier credits Jackson for her love of gymnastics.
“She is the reason I love gymnastics,” Frazier said after a meet against the University of Utah this week. “I really try my best to make it a performance to entertain, and that’s because of her.”
