Michelle Obama Honors Janelle Monae At Grammy Luncheon

published on July 18 by Shannon

First Lady Michelle Obama delivered the keynote address at the Grammy Museum’s Jane Ortner Education Awards Luncheon Wednesday on the importance of arts education in our school system. She was also there to honor singer Janelle Monae for her mentorship with young students through the Grammy Museum’s educational efforts. The six-time Grammy nominated singer was honored along with teacher Sunshine Cavalluzzi.

As she honored Monae, Mrs. Obama spoke about the importance of the arts in education to the our children, while adding that an expansion of the program is needed so that every child is involved.

“Engagement in the arts can unlock a world of possibilities for our young people. … For many young people, arts education is the only reason they get out of bed in the morning,” Michelle said (via the Los Angeles Times). “Just like Janelle, they go to school each day because there’s an instrument they want to play, a musical they want to perform in, a painting they are dying to finish. So then once they arrive in those classrooms, that’s when we can teach them something else, like math and writing and science. That is the power of the arts for so many of our young people.”

Janelle Monae also gave a moving performance at the event.

I just can’t handle this must beautiful excellence in one room


a few quick reminders:

- that thing you did that was kind of embarrassing and weird, everyone else forgot about that already

- you look fine today, if you can’t notice something on your face standing 6 feet from a mirror then nobody else will either

- if something is out of your control, do not let yourself or anyone else expect you to deal with it alone

- social lives can go through cycles sometimes, if you feel like your friends are all ignoring you for no reason they’re probably just busy with other things

- if you can’t stop thinking about someone or something, find something mentally occupying to do like reading a book or watching a movie. it won’t solve any serious problems but you will feel better

- nothing will always be easy, if you’re trying then that should be good enough for anyone. if it’s not then you’re talking with the wrong people

- never underestimate the importance of going to bed, if it’s dark outside and you feel bad just go to bed and deal with your problems the next day

Been wanting to doodle Peggy Cap ever since that text post a few days ago. I MAY prefer this to Steve haha. She’s SUCH a competent agent to start with and give her super soldier abilities and holy crap.

Her hair was a mane of jet-black ringlets that fell to the small of her back, and around her brow was a band of copper suns. Where the Sand Snakes were tall, Arianne took after her mother, who stood but five foot two. She is still a little thing, the captain thought. Yet beneath her jewelled girdle and loose layers of flowing purple silk and yellow samite she had a woman’s body, lush and roundly curved.
