NEW YORK (AP) — It was a musical joyride for Michelle Obama as she joined James Corden for a “Carpool Karaoke” session that aired Wednesday on the late-night host’s CBS show.
The first lady and Corden didn’t go far — security demanded that they stick to the driveway on the White House property. But that didn’t mean they couldn’t belt out Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours” and Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).”
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” was to be posted Monday night at http://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.
