Michelle Obama followed in the footsteps of Ellen DeGeneres and Elton John after singing karaoke with James Corden for his Carpool Karaoke section of The Late Late Show.

Obama told the host to "crank it up" to sing along to Stevie Wonder's Signed Sealed and Delivered ("Stevie Wonder is my favourite") and Beyonce's Single Ladies. She also told Corden that sitting in the passenger seat was 'a treat' for her because she is driven around so much.

Her agenda for coming on the show was to raise money for her Let Girls Learn initiative, which aims to educate girls around the world. The song for Let Girls Learn is titled This Is for My Girls and features Kelly Clarkson, Zendaya and Janelle Monae, among others.

The song also features Missy Elliot, who appeared mid ride to sing the song before moving on to her all time famous Get Your Freak On. The banter throughout is amusing, but definitely driven by an agenda. At the end of the clip, back at his desk, Corden promotes Michelle Obama's Snapchat account, Let Girls Learn, This Is For My Girls on iTunes. But Michelle Obama has managed to become a likable first lady who is well versed with the art of making appearances. Here's the full video:
