Michelle Obama carpools with James Corden
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.
