The album is part of her “Let’s Move” campaign which she launched two years ago to help end child obesity in America.

Artists like Run DMC, Ashanti, Doug E. Fresh, Monifah, Ariana Grande, Travis Barker and American Idol winner Jordin Sparks are all contributing their vocal talents to the album, which is called “Songs for a Healthier America”.  Even America’s favorite doctor, Dr. OZ drops a couple bars with a healthy rhyme in the song called “Everybody” featuring Jordin Sparks. 

The album features tracks with names like “We Like Vegetables,” “Veggie Luv,” “Get Up Sit Up” and “U R What You Eat,” all designed to get kids thinking about health and diet. Ten music videos are set to be released with the album and will be distributed to schools in New York City, with other major cities to follow.

Obama’s Take A Bike Ride!

When being the President does not fill up Barack’s schedule, he and his family like to go on a getaway.  On their most recent mini vacation, the family visited Martha’s Vineyard in Tisbury, Massachusetts.  Because Michelle has been motivating kid’s to workout and get some fresh air daily, it is no surprise to see the family go on a scenic bike ride.

Long story short, if the President can take time off to get some exercise, you most definitely can too!

Hit a bike trail or take a spin class to get your endorphins and blood flowing like the president and his family.
