Hey, isn’t that . . . former first lady Michelle Obama checking out singer Erykah Badu on Saturday night?
Mrs. Obama was among the sold-out crowd at the Anthem, the District’s newest music venue, rocking along to the greatest-hits set list featured during the soul singer’s “Badu vs. Everythang” tour. Although Badu never performed at the White House during Obama’s time there, in 2015, the then-first lady made an appearance at BET’s “Black Girls Rock!” celebration honoring Badu, among other artists.
Mrs. O is no stranger to stepping out to hear live music around town. She was most recently spotted at Bruno Mars’s “24K Magic” tour stop at the Capital One Arena.
