Sesame street is taking off on it’s 45th season with a bang! First Janelle Monae sings “The Power of Yet” and now we have a deliciously radiant Lupita Nyong’o talking about the ubiquity and purpose of skin with Elmo. Lupita is visually a delight to see and sonically you just want to hear her keep talking as her voice is so serene.

“Our skin covers our whole body to protect it, Elmo…”

“Oh wow! Elmo see’s that Ms. Lupita’s skin is a beautiful brown color!”

“I love my skin”

I’m off to go work on my slight and soft proper English accent, but you can catch the super cute clip below.
