Michelle Obama Is Achieving Some Serious #SquadGoals at SXSW

Missy Elliott, Queen Latifah, Diane Warren, Sophia Bush and Michelle Obama in the same room? Are we dreaming? 

The first lady announced her surprise guests today (March 14) and basically redefined #SquadGoals in the process.

The best part?

Well, besides the news itself, the good news for those not able to attend is that the event will be live streamed on AOL’s Makers.com website, which is focused on empowering women.

As announced, Halle and Chloe Bailey will kick the event off on March 16. The sisters were signed to Beyoncé’s management company Parkwood Entertainment after their 2013 cover of Bey’s “Pretty Hurts” went viral.

Queen Latifah also is slated to moderate the session, which will focus on the Let Girls Learn initiative. Amazing.
