Celebrating her ethnic community, Jennifer Lopez teamed up with Michelle Obama at the League of Latin American Citizens annual convention earlier this week.
The “First Love” singer dressed to impress for the event held at Manhattan’s Hilton hotel as she introduced the First Lady who gave the keynote address.

“There are still too many young people in this country who aren’t getting the education they need,” Obama said during her LULAC speech. “Too many young people in the Latino community just aren’t fulfilling their potential.”

“We have to reignite that hunger for education,” Obama continued. “Parents have to be reading to their kids from an early age and make sure they go to school every day and do their homework every night. Our young people, you have to make education your number one priority. If you know someone who’s not planning to go on past high school, I want you to reach out to them.”

After Mrs. Obama gave her speech, she took a moment to pose for a selfie with JLo, who captioned the image, “Me and my girl @flotus at #LULAC National convention for the empowerment of Latinos. #represent #keynotespeaker #introingthekeynotespeaker #dreambig.”
