Watch this video of 6-year-old Sydney Trapp playing "Ode to Joy" for the first lady
First lady Michelle Obama is known for pushing healthy eating and exercise but at a campaign stop last Thursday she was all about pies. One apple and one sour cherry pie, to be precise.
The first lady made an unannounced stop at Mom’s Apple Pie Co., a family-owned bakery in Occoquan, a small town about 23 miles southwest of the White House, ABC News reports.
Six-year-old Sydney Trapp happened to be in the shop and serenaded Mrs. Obama with “Ode to Joy” on her violin.
Lastly, take a look above and check out the new Pinterest and Reddit sharing buttons.
I’m willing to make the claim that Mrs. O’s beautifully colorblocked pink and mint outfit will get you “re-pinned” on Pinterest, so go share.
