Michelle Obama Pushes for Arts in School at Grammy Luncheon

Michelle Obama waves to the crowd while attending The Grammy Museum’s Jane Ortner Education Award luncheon on Wednesday afternoon (July 16) at The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles.

The First Lady of the United States was joined by singer Janelle Monae, who entertained the crowd with an energetic performance.

“For so many young people, arts education is the only reason they get up out of bed in the morning,” Michelle said (via the Los Angeles Times). “Just like Janelle, they go to school each day because there’s an instrument they want to play, a musical they want to perform in, a painting they are dying to finish. So then once they arrive in those classrooms, that’s when we can teach them something else, like math and writing and science. That is the power of the arts for so many of our young people.”

FYI: Michelle is wearing a 3.1 Phillip Lim dress.
