Michelle Obama has enlisted the help of music’s biggest name — Beyonce — to get kids exercising. The 16-time Grammy winner has rewritten and re-recorded a special song for an unforgettable workout…
According to Hip-Hop Wired, the National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation will head-up a special “Let’s Move! Flash Workout” featuring Beyonce. Middle school students all across the nation are scheduled to dance in unison on Tuesday, May 3, at 1:42 p.m. Eastern Time.
“I am excited to be part of this effort that addresses a public health crisis. First Lady Michelle Obama deserves credit for tackling this issue directly, and I applaud the NAB Education Foundation for trying to make a positive difference in the lives of our schoolchildren,” said Beyonce in a statement.
What song will have kids in all 50 states dancing? We’ll have to just wait and see. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was “Get Me Bodied.” Either way, it’s great to see Mrs. Obama get a little help in fighting the child obesity epidemic in America.
