Michelle Obama is about to drop KNOWLEDGE on you ... in the form of a 19-track hip-hop album geared toward children and focusing on her signature issues:
Eating healthy and exercising regularly.
The First Lady of the U.S. teamed up with a handful of big names in the music business, including Jordin Sparks, Ashanti, and DMC to record the album,
Its title: "Songs for a Healthier America."
Michelle Obama, who does not rap or sing on the album, is releasing the collection in conjunction with her “Let’s Move” program, which she formed in 2010.
Its goal is to help fight childhood obesity, as is Partnership for a Healthier America, an independent group she's also working with to solve the issue.
Partnership for a Healthier America Chief Marketing Officer Drew Nannis said:
“The simple act of getting up and dancing is a great way to be active. We are bringing together music and activity in a way we felt people could identify with.”
The organizations will release 10 music videos from the album by next summer, which will be distributed to schools in New York and other large cities.
The first, for a song sung by Jordin Sparks titled “Everybody,” was released Tuesday and features a number of other celebs, including Doug E. Fresh and Dr. Oz.
