US first lady sings for charity on TV

Associated Press Associated Press 19/07/2016

Michelle Obama's Carpool Karaoke joyride with James Corden will air on the late-night host's CBS show.

The first lady and Corden sing This Is For My Girls, described as a girl power anthem intended to promote full access to education worldwide.

The song was written by Grammy-winner Diane Warren and includes artists Kelly Clarkson, Missy Elliott, Janelle Monae, Kelly Rowland, Lea Michele and Zendaya.

It was produced by AOL's Makers, a women's leadership platform. A teaser clip for Obama's taped appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Wednesday was to be posted on Monday night at www.makers.com/thisisformygirls.

AOL wasn't letting on whether any of the pop stars who recorded This Is For My Girls will join Obama and Corden in the Carpool Karaoke video, which was taped last month in Washington.

The song was released in March after the first lady spoke at the South by Southwest festival in Texas.

The tune benefits Let Girls Learn, an initiative launched last year by the first lady and President Barack Obama to address the barriers that keep more than 62 million girls around the world out of school.
