"Regardless of the pressure, the stress of being under the microscope, she is humble, caring and sincere," he continued. Part of the script for the video was the content of an open letter to Michelle Obama that she wrote herself. In it, the singer thanked the lawyer "for everything" she does for Americans. "I am proud that my daughter will grow up in a world where she can admire people like you," commented the artist.
