NEW YORK -- Who will be next in the passenger seat for an upcoming edition of "Carpool Karaoke" with "Late Late Show" host James Corden?

None other than Michelle Obama.

The first lady announced the appearance with Corden as she launched her Snapchat account, "MichelleObama."

Corden was at the White House on Tuesday for the taping. The segment will air soon.

The White House said Obama joined the social media app to promote her trip next week to Liberia, Morocco and Spain to encourage education for the estimated 62 million adolescent girls around the world who aren't attending school.
