Soul Fixin'

Michelle's Momement

The first night of the Democratic National Convention was an emotional affair. John Legend kicked things off with a performance of 'If You're Out There,' Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. delivered an inspiring speech and Kennedy clan patriarch and Democratic elder statesman Sen. Ted Kennedy made a surprise appearance. The highlight of the night belonged to First Lady hopeful Michelle Obama. Michelle Obama's soul stirring speech, an effort to present the Obama's as embodiments of the American Dream, reflected on her humble beginnings on Chicago's South Side and Barack's central message of change.
