Malia Obama 'Auditions' to Be Rock Star in New Dakotas Video

Everyone knows Malia Obama is a huge music lover. She's been spotted at some of the biggest music festivals in the country, cutting loose and dancing like nobody is watching. The former first daughter may have gotten to live out a little fantasy in the latest New Dakotas video.

The video 'Walking On Air' by the New Dakotas was released this week, and fans were thrilled to see the former First Daughter rocking it out. Though her appearance is brief, and she doesn’t even come into the video until one minute and forty seconds into the song, she puts her all into her headbanging, hair-flipping, harmonica-blowing debut.

Her appearance has really helped the band to get their names out there.

The premise of the video is that the singer of the virtually unknown Boston-based band, Chris Haley, overslept and missed rehearsal. Unable to reach him, the band decided to hold auditions to replace Chris. They paper the town with fliers calling for potential replacements, and people begin auditioning.

One of those people is Malia Obama. Though it's Chris's voice still singing through the sequence, Malia lip-sinks, dances and plays the harmonica for the other bandmates. The bandmates smile and nod as they evaluate her.

After Chris spends some time wallowing in self-pity, he pulls himself together and runs... and runs, and runs some more. He gets there just to watch the band sign a new member and collapses in grief, banging on the glass door. Surprisingly, Malia didn't make the cut.

Malia is looking fierce wearing an oversized fleece sweatshirt, black beanie, jeans and combat boots. She has the moves a young woman who spent many hours of her youth in front of a mirror, using a brush as a microphone, as music blared on the stereo.

Her love of music really comes through, and it’s no surprise at all that she was willing to help out some of her university upperclassmen.

Members of the band are all Harvard seniors. It's unclear if the band was a fan of Malia's or if Malia was a fan of the band. Maybe it was mutual, but somehow they got together give Malia the cameo in their latest video.

It doesn’t take the intelligence of a Harvard student to know that this would put the band on the map.

The New Dakotas had only just started getting local notice, but most of their songs on platforms like Spotify and YouTube have gotten barely 2,000 views. Now, with Malia in the video, it’s trending on social media. They debuted it on their website on Monday and the views have been racking up. There is no telling how far they’ll go now.

Malia’s resume just keeps getting more impressive. While she was still in high school, she did an internship over the summer on Lena Dunham's HBO series, ‘Girls’. After graduating high school, the eldest Obama daughter spent a year in New York City doing an internship reading scripts. Now, she’s appearing in a music video.

The best thing about it is that Malia was totally able to be a video vixen without wearing anything skimpy and flashing too much skin. Her mother and father must be so proud.
