Michelle Obama in hip-hop healthy eating video

Posted: Updated:

VINEYARD HAVEN, Mass. (AP) - Michelle Obama is making a cameo appearance in a video for a hip-hop song recorded to encourage kids from minority groups to take care of their bodies.

The song, "Everybody," is one of 19 on an album called "Songs for a Healthier America," set for release next month. The album is being produced by Hip Hop Public Health and the Partnership for a Healthier America, both of which support the first lady's "Let's Move" anti-childhood obesity campaign. Statistics show higher rates of overweight and obesity among black and Latino children.

In the video, Mrs. Obama talks briefly about launching "Let's Move" and people's doubts about whether it will make a difference.

The song itself is sung by rapper Doug E. Fresh, along with Jordin Sparks, Dr. Oz and others.
