First Lady Michelle Obama and a few of her friends — rapper and musician friends that is — have a musical message: Everybody get healthy — together!
"Songs for a Healthier America" is a 19-song collection that aims to use music and dance to get kids thinking and being healthy.
Mrs. Obama and Mehmet Oz, MD, of the health talk TV show "Dr. Oz," are joined by a who's who list of rappers and musicians that will appeal to all ages — from Doug E. Fresh to Jordin Sparks to Ashanti to Matisyahu.
And, yes, Dr. Oz even raps!
You only have one life to live
That's what it is!
The project was produced by Partnership for a Healthier America with Hip Hop Public Health, a New York City-based non-profit that hopes to end health illiteracy.
It all ties in nicely to Mrs. Obama's Let's Move! campaign and shows great insight and creativity to spread the message that a healthy community is a strong community.
