Although the tracks don’t feature her singing voice, first lady Michelle Obama is releasing her first hip-hop album next month. The CD, called “Songs for a Healthier America,” correlates with her Let’s Move initiative, which aims to end childhood obesity.
The 19 tracks on the CD feature well-known artists who talk about nutrition, fitness and activity. The album is the joint project of Let’s Move and the Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA). Schools in New York City will receive the album, along with its music videos, before it is distributed to other major cities, according to Politico.com.
“I'm no hater, but these music/dance things just don't age well, she needs a new agent, said superskrul, a commenter on The Daily Beast.com. “Leaving a legacy of unintentional humor at your own expense. Surely there's something better she can do with her time.”
Others find her efforts to fight childhood obesity commendable.
“I don't really think it's ‘embarrassing’ that Ms. Obama is doing this. She's not in high school and needs to impress everyone by being super cool. She's trying to make a lasting impression on the youth of America,” said Ashley8084 on a comment board. “Good for her. It might keep a few kids from getting diabetes.”
The tracks on “Songs for a Healthier America” will be available for download on Healthier America.org.
