First Lady Michelle Obama Links Up With Missy Elliott & Music’s Biggest Female Stars For Charity Single, ‘This Is For My Girls’

Just before her keynote address at the South by Southwest Music (SXSW) Festival in Austin, Texas on today (March 16), she dropped a new single called “This Is For My Girls.” Don’t get too excited, though; Mrs. Obama isn’t singing on the track. Rather, she’s commissioned many of her female music industry friends like Missy Elliott and legendary songwriter Diane Warren to create a song cited as a “global call to action which helps break down barriers and stigma that prevent girls from getting the education they rightfully deserve.”
