First lady’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ video airing Wednesday


LOS ANGELES (AP) — Michelle Obama’s “Carpool Karaoke” joyride with James Corden is airing Wednesday on the late-night host’s CBS show.

The first lady and Corden sing “This Is For My Girls,” described as a “girl power anthem” intended to promote full access to education worldwide. The video was taped last month in Washington.

The song was written by Grammy-winner Diane Warren and includes artists Kelly Clarkson, Missy Elliott, Janelle Monae, Kelly Rowland, Lea Michele and Zendaya.

The producer was AOL’s Makers, a women’s leadership platform. AOL says a teaser clip for Obama’s appearance on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” is being posted Monday night at www.makers.com/thisisformygirls .
