Michelle Obama reminded us who is FLOTUS Forever when she busted a few moves on stage at Wednesday’s College Signing Day in Philadelphia.
The former first lady danced on stage at Temple University alongside Empire star Jussie Smollett. The Sum of My Music singer performed in front of more than 8,000 students at the fifth annual event, which was created to honor high school kids heading off to college.
The 54-year-old is no stranger to publicly showing off her dance moves. She just recently lit the Internet on fire when she had a private dance party with two-year old Parker Curry— the little girl who was mesmerized with her official portrait at Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery.
Wearing a denim Alexander McQueen jacket, black skinny jeans, a black tee and strappy sandals, and rocking her signature curly lob with bangs, Obama also cut a rug with R&B singers Ciara and Kelly Rowland at the celebration.
Zendaya was another notable attendee in the audience, captioning the fun moment on stage, “Get it @michelleobama44.”
Beyond her dance skills, though, Mrs. Obama also took the mic while she was on stage to inspire the college-goers with a few words of wisdom.
“There are all these people out there telling you what you can’t do,” Obama told the cheering crowd. “I am so proud of you all. You did just what I did. You ignored the haters.”
“There were a lot of people who told us that we weren’t supposed to be in the White House, that we couldn’t handle the pressure, that we weren’t ready,” she continued. “So I’m telling you, they will doubt you today and they will doubt you for the rest of your life…I’m not one of the doubters. I know that you have what it takes to succeed.”
