Beyoncé Shows Support for Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move Campaign in NYC

Beyoncé Shows Support for Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move Campaign in NYC

While our First Lady showed the world she could “dougie” and dance like the best of them in Washington, D.C., Beyoncé made her very own surprise appearance at a school in Harlem, New York to show her support for Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign.

The students at PS 161 Pedro Albizu Campos were in their high school gymnasium performing their very own Flash workout when Beyoncé made her surprise entrance! And these kids didn’t miss a beat!

Check it out! (Beyoncé enters at 1:35)

Our First Lady does the “dougie” and Beyoncé dances in a gym with a bunch of high school students — all in the name of health and fitness – this is the best campaign ever!

Anything that gets these kids moving is good.

This is kind of hilarious. Good for Beyonce for supporting Michelle Obama.

Beyonce is disgusting, she wears lots of FURS and she's the the face of L'Oreal that KILLS ANIMALS by testing cosmetics...
I think this issue is just a good PR-campaign for her and nothing else.
And those kids will think she's so good and act like her, wear furs and buy that cosmetics...

don't know one Beyonce song and didn't watch the video, but heard about this and think anyone who can promote exercise and healthy living deserves support for that....

When I was in middle school Arnold Schwartenegger had a health campaign that was implemented by having us children do timed tests for running, sit-ups ad push-ups. It was a good campaign and most everybody was in shape then.
Beyonce seams to be in a costume everytime I see a picture of her.
I think her denial of her african heritage by always wearing white-women hair in wigs does great harm for those who attempt to be a natural black women, whom I adore.
