To celebrate the 5th anniversary of the Joining Forces initiative, First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden headed to ‘The Voice’ on May 2!
While The Voice is all about the talented singers, on May 2, NBC paid special tribute to active duty and retired service members and families by filling the entire room full of them — and bringing out Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden!
Michelle and Jill hit the stage to honor the troops and celebrate the 5th anniversary of their Joining Forces initiative. Jill wowed in a leather dress, while the First Lady rocked The Voice in a white jumpsuit and black jacket.
They revealed that they have been traveling across the country to visit military families, and they are “just in awe” of them. Then they introduced the top 10, who sang Dierks Bentley’s “Home!”
Michelle was so impressed by the top 10’s performance. She said it was an “amazing start to the anniversary!”
The appearance is just the start of cameos for the First Lady who will be celebrating the initiative all week long, to raise awareness of the need to support members of the service, veterans and their families.
The celebration continues Tuesday night, when the first lady will guest star in an episode of CBS’ NCIS; on Thursday, both Michelle and Jill will be hosting an employment event announcing commitments from 50+ companies who have pledged to hire veterans and military spouses.
Then on Sunday, May 8, Michelle will head to Orlando, Florida to celebrate the Opening Ceremonies of the 2016 Invictus Games at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, along side Prince Harry. The Invictus Games is a sporting event for wounded, injured, and ill service members and veterans, with more than 500 competitors.
