Portsmouth native Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott performed at Pharrell's Something's In The Water Festival over the weekend. But before hitting the festival stage at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront, the rap superstar made a quick pitstop to donate $25,000 to the students at Woodrow Wilson High School.

It was a homecoming for Elliott, who graduated from the Portsmouth Public Schools system in the 90s when Woodrow Wilson High School was still known as Manor High School.
