Cookie and her assistant, Porsha (Ta'Rhonda Jones) were surprised by the children who sang her a beautiful song.
Cookie agrees to accompany Angelo. When Cookie arrives, Angelo reveals that it's a charity event and Cookie tries to go back home to change her clothes but Angelo doesn't let her. Cookie's wearing a sexy red dress. Angelo introduces her to some of his boogie friends and then they make their way to their seats where they're very impressed by Lauren Michelle's beautiful voice.
