Michelle Obama Promotes Healthy Living with Rap Album
(WASHINGTON) -- Michelle Obama is an accomplished lawyer, mother of two and, of course, the first lady. And now, she’s adding hip-hop artist to her impressive resume. The first lady is lending her star power to a new rap album to inspire people to live healthier, more active lives.
Before you get your hopes up too high, no, the first lady does not actually rap on the album. But she is playing a speaking role in a new song titled “Everybody,” featuring Jordin Sparks, Doug E. Fresh, Dr. Oz and the Hip Hop Doc. Obama teamed up with Partnership for a Healthier America to make the album as part of her Let’s Move! healthy eating initiative.
The record, Songs for a Healthier America, features music by Matisyahu, Travis Barker, Artie Green, Ashanti and Monifah, among others, and includes songs titled “U R What You Eat,” “Veggie Luv” and “Hip Hop F.E.E.T.” The music videos released with the album will reportedly be distributed to New York City schools before being circulated more widely.
