Move Your Body

First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let's Move! campaign, which promotes health awareness and the wellbeing of all girls, is making the news once again.  Last year, Girl Museum reported Michelle Obama joined the board of directors for Girls Inc. to promote better eating habits, but now celebrities like Beyoncé and comedian Wayne Brady are becoming involved to promote exercise and a healthy diet.

Beyoncé rewrote her 2007 hit Get Me Bodied and created Move Your Body in support of the Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! campaign.  In the video, Beyoncé dances with hundreds of students from a junior high school.  Last week, Beyoncé’s video reached over 2 million YouTube plays.
