Sara Bareilles & Cynthia Erivo Sing for Michelle Obama at Broadway Event!

Michelle Obama gives Tony Award winner Cynthia Erivo a big hug while appearing on stage at the Broadway Shines Light on Global Girls’ Education event on Monday (September 19) at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre in New York City.

The First Lady of the United States hosted the event, which was held in the Broadway theater where Cynthia‘s musical The Color Purple is currently playing.

Other big names from Broadway that appeared at the event included Sara Bareilles, the composer of Waitress, and Jenna Ushkowitz, who currently is starring in that show.

The Late Show‘s Stephen Colbert and Beautiful: The Carole King Musical star Chilina Kennedy also made appearances.

“So inspired by the #letgirlslearn program today–provided by @michelleobama. I felt so fortunate to get to learn about the world through the eyes of a group of people who want to inspire girls to keep doing just that…to learn. I take for granted how easily we can access education here…so tonight I’m feeling grateful and returned to a song that arrived as I was embarking on an unknown journey in my own life. I never want to stop learning. #LETGIRLSLEARN,” Sara wrote on her Instagram after the event. She also added the below video of herself singing “Uncharted.”

FYI: Michelle is wearing a Self-Portrait dress and Jennifer Fisher jewelry.
