Well this could explain some things.

Michelle Obama releasing a hip-hop album???
Sounds pretty crazy, right? Well as insane as it might sound, it will actually become a reality as the First Lady plans on dropping a record to encourage kids to eat right and stay healthy!
Mrs. O has played a huge role in the fight against childhood obesity, and with some help from her organization Let's Move!, she hopes to keep kids healthy through the power of music!
White House assistant chef Sam Kass says hip-hop music is the perfect platform to get the message across to today's kids:
"Cultural leaders and visionaries in our country can give these messages to kids in a way that's not preachy. Kids are going to be dancing and listening to the music. I think hip-hop in particular – so many kids love hip-hop. It's such a core part of our culture."
What a great idea!!
But before you get excited about the First Lady stepping behind the mic and spitting some mad rhymes, it sounds like she'll be keeping the singing to the professionals!
The album, titled Songs For A Healthier America is set to be released September 30th and will feature a wide array of artists including Matisyahu, Travis Barker, Ariana Grande, Ashanti, DMC, and MANY more!
We're still feeling the love from our party!!
Grateful really doesn't even begin to explain it.

You made our night so very bright! THANK YOU!!
Happy Spark Seeker release day Matisyahu-yearners!
The alt-rock musician with a reggae-rap twist dropped by recently and graced us with some intimate, acoustic performances of his spankin' new tracks!
We are such lucky ducks to be able to present you this beautiful, bare-bones rendition of Live Like A Warrior, off of Spark Seeker (above)!
We've always adored Matisyahu's thoughtful and spiritual lyrics, and Live Like A Warrior is no exception to his humanistic, musical library!
