This past weekend I was scrolling through Instagram and saw that Tonia Jo Hall had been hanging out somewhere were Grammy award wining artist Pharrell Williams was.

Not big deal chillin by Pharrell Williams ๐Ÿ˜…

I guess they were at a birthday party, but not only was Pharrell Wiliams there but Northern Cree too! Talk about an awesome birthday? They got the musicians together and Pharrell sat in on drums with Northern Cree!

Here's what Northern Cree posted on their Facebook Page:

A special shout out to, and a big super 15th birthday to Jonna Grace Brady. You rock girl! We were invited to her birthday party on Monday after the powwow, and it was spectacular. NC got to sing her the birthday song and also were requested by her special guest Pharrell Williams (Steve here, “I didn't know who he was?” Lol). He wanted to hear NC and experience sitting at the drum. It was a good experience that he seemed to be really moved by. Possibility of Pharrell and NC collaborating on a project in near future. Here is a short clip that was posted by one of the guests in attendance.

I'd be down with hearing that collab!

Let's hope it happens, for real!
