A Lip-Syncing Malia Obama Makes Her Music Video Debut

1 minute read

Malia Obama made her onscreen debut in the music video for Boston-based indie rock group New Dakotas’ song, “Walking on Air.”

In the clip, the eldest daughter of former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama dances and lip syncs the lyrics to the easy listening song in front of a microphone. At one point, she even mimics playing the harmonica.

Malia, a 20-year-old second year student at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusets, appears alongside New Dakotas band members Alasdair MacKenzie, Chris Haley, Scott Roberts, and Juan Carlos Fernandez del Castillo. All of the band members are Harvard undergraduate students, like Malia.

“Walking on Air” is the New Dakotas’ second music video following “Hold that Pose” and one of five songs featured on their EP Marsh Street, which was released in April of this year.
