Michelle Obama Hits Stage At ESPN Awards For Eunice Kennedy Shriver
Former First Lady Michelle Obama has hit the stage at ESPN's ESPY awards, celebrating Eunice Kennedy Shriver for her work in founding the Special Olympics.
The former First Lady donned some bondage style heels and showed off a sleek hairstyle as she took to the stage in Los Angeles to be greeted by retired NFL star and Trump golf partner Peyton Manning.
She received a huge round of applause from the athletes and other stars in attendance, so much so she had a wait a few extra moments before detailing why Shriver was the recipient of the network's Arthur Ashe Courage Award.
'I am here tonight to honor a remarkable woman, a woman who believed everyone has something to contribute, and everyone deserves the chance to push themselves and find out what they are made of and to compete and win,' Michelle told the audience.
'She knew when we gave others the greatest chance to fulfill their potential, we all win. So nearly 50 years ago, she created the Special Olympics, and over the course of her life she turned that visionary idea into a worldwide movement with competitions across the globe.'
The former First Lady steered clear of any political comments or discussion, however she ended her speech by talking about the need to make the world 'more inclusive, welcoming, and fair' for everyone – regardless of where they come from, who they are, or any other differences.
