As Michelle Obama prepares to make her final exit out of The White House, The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon had to do a proper send off for our First Lady that included a serenade by Stevie Wonder.
“When I think about the fact that some of them are afraid about what’s to come … I don’t want them to be afraid,” Michelle says during Wednesday’s show. “I want them to embrace the future and know that the world is getting better. We have bumps in the road, we have ups and downs. But I want our kids to move forward, I don’t care where they come from, with strength and with hope.”
“I didn’t think it was going to be that emotional. It’s been surprisingly emotional for all of us in ways that we didn’t expect.” She adds.
Fallon took the time to express his thanks to our First Lady during his epic “Thank You Notes” segment.
“Thank you, Mrs. Obama, for being a smart, strong, independent woman, an activist, a style icon, and a great dancer. And showing us all what it would look like if Beyoncé had married a much nerdier Jay Z,” Fallon joked.
“That’s my boo! Mom jeans and all.” Michelle replies with laughter.
