Alicia Keys’ New Movie Praised by Michelle Obama


Alicia Keys served as executive produced for the inner city coming-of-age film The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete last year and if you missed it, you’re in luck.

It’s now available on DVD and VOD and even has been praised by First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama, who screened it during a discussion about education at the White House … a moment which left Alicia understandably humbled.

“It really is rewarding to have the recognition of the film from the first lady herself and for it to be a catalyst to a bigger conversation she’s starting about new ways to approach education,” the singer-actress tells On Air with Ryan Seacrest. “It’s truly inspiring.”
