Cynthia Erivo, who won a 2016 Tony Award for her performance as Celie in the Broadway revival of The Color Purple, posted a short video on Instagram featuring herself and Misty Copeland.

Copeland, who made her Broadway debut in the recent revival of On the Town, offers an ethereal dance backed by Erivo's gorgeous a cappella rendition of the Gershwin classic “Summertime.”

Erivo posted, “Sometimes different forms of art collide to create one! I make music with my voice and @mistyonpointe used it to paint pictures with her body. Thank you @cosmopolitan for bringing us together.” Copeland is featured in the August issue of Cosmopolitan.
