Today,  First Lady Michelle Obama will appear at the South By Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas as a keynote speaker.  Just hours before Obama is set to take the stage, she released a new single that was produced by AOL MAKERS and written by Dianne Warren.

Of course, the First Lady doesn’t sing on the track, but she did get Missy Elliott, Kelly Clarkson, Janelle Monáe, Kelly Rowland, Zendaya, and Lea Michele to sing on it.  The song is called “This Is For My Girls,” which is a charity single.  All the song’s proceeds will be donated to the Peace Corps Let Girls Learn Fund.

Obama will be speaking about the Let Girls Learn Fund that aims to help girls all around the world get the education they deserve.  She will also be discussing her #62MillionGirls campaign.

You can preview a clip of the song below, and you can purchase it here.  You can read more on the story here.
