Celebrating her new business venture, ‘Grandma’s Tea’, a non-caffeinated tea made for kids, the young entrepreneur had been dancing around the company’s market stall when her mum, Karesha Worford, suggested she showed the moves off to the crowd.

Moments later, the mother-of-three was left speechless by the hidden talent her eldest child had concealed all along.

Visibly shocked, the crowd broke into cheers brought about by the youngster’s flair.

Karesha, 30, said: “We went to ‘First Fridays’ in Kansas City, set up to sell Grandma’s Tea and the book I have written, and Bray kept bouncing and dancing around the table. 

“I dared her to go into the crowd and show off, so she went on to bust out the moves and surprise everyone.

“I had no idea she could dance like that, especially she has not attended a single dance class since she was two-years-old.”

“Bray wants to build this company to help with future college costs and be able to open her own tea store.”

Grandma’s Tea was set up by the school girl after gaining a strong fondness for tea from her grandmother, who has provide Bray with cups since she was very young.

Karesha said: “Tea has always been a favorite of Bray’s and she has been making herself cups of it since an early age, even requesting it when we go out to for meals at restaurants.”
