Beyoncé Joins First Lady Michelle in Child Obesity Effort

Hey hey all. Hope everything is well. Ok, so haven't blogged in almost 3 weeks :-( A lot going on in Australia, so don't be surprised if you don't hear from me every now and again. I'll still be tweeting though so at least you'll know I'm alive :-) So go follow! And now some news!

Beyoncé has officially joined First Lady Michelle Obama's effort to fight child obesity, according to SingersRoom. The National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation is also a part of the campaign, titled "Let's Move!" The campaign encourages kids to get out and get moving to better their health.

“I am excited to be part of this effort that addresses a public health crisis,” Bey said in a statement. “First Lady Michelle Obama deserves credit for tackling this issue directly, and I applaud the NAB Education Foundation for trying to make a positive difference in the lives of our schoolchildren.”

Bey revamped and re-recorded one of her songs for middle school students across the States to perform a pre-choreographed dance exercise at 1:42 p.m. on May 3. She also has personally recorded an instructional video demonstrating the dance routine for students.

I think it's a great idea for the two to join together. I also applaud First Lady Michelle on starting this effort. Child obesity is a major issue across the United States, with kids being glued to TV and video games, instead of being active. Why not have two of the most powerful women in the world join up for a great cause? Definitely a good venture. Go Bey!
