A a part of her effort to encourage high school students to go to college, Michelle Obama recruited Saturday Night Live's Jay Pharoah to make a pro-higher-education video. The First Lady keeps her rhymes short and to the point: South Side Chicago we all know/ We had to do overtime every night to make it tomorrow/ And everyone could really make their dream true/ Hey kid listening in Michigan, that could be you!
