Michelle Obama car­pools with James Cor­den

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

Michelle Obama’s “Car­pool Karaoke” joyride with James Cor­den will air Wed­nes­day on the latenight host’s CBS show. The U.S. 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. 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 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.
