Stevie Wonder in Performance at the White House: The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize 2008 - 2009 (TV Show)
The first African-American First Lady, Michelle Obama become one of the most beloved and admired women to ever hold that title. Growing up a gifted and compassionate young woman, she earned degrees from Princeton and Harvard Law School, which she put to use serving her hometown of Chicago. While working at a law firm, she was assigned to be the mentor of a summer associate, Barack Obama, and the two married in 1992, eventually welcoming two daughters, Sasha and Malia. As her husband saw his political stock rise, Obama cultivated her own massively successful career, but cut back to support his run for the presidency, which he won in 2008 and in 2012. Although she preferred to shun the spotlight, Obama rose to the occasion and became one of her husband's administration's key assets, spearheading charm offensives on talk shows and starting her own initiative to fight childhood obesity, "Let's Move!" Eloquent, intelligent and enormously popular, Michelle Obama redefined what it meant to be First Lady while also inspiring many to hope she might consider running for office herself one day.
