An upcoming episode of “The Voice” will feature two special guests that will appear in the reality singing competition show. U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden are set to join the show’s host and judges for the special episode.
Both the ladies will appear in the upcoming “The Voice” episode to air on Monday as part of the festivities to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the Joining Forces Initiative, Variety reported.
U.S. President Barack Obama’s wife and Dr. Biden have helped to create the initiative that was first launched in 2011. The Joining Forces Initiative aims to support military veterans, service men and military families. It also helps to provide employment opportunities, as well as introduce support programs geared towards education and wellness.
For the upcoming “The Voice” episode, both the guests as well as the show host Carson Daly and judges Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and Pharrell Williams will welcome various members of the military. The show’s audience for the upcoming episode are said to be military personnel on active duty, veterans and military families.
This will not be the first time that viewers will see the U.S. first lady join a TV program to celebrate the Joining Forces Initiative anniversary. She will also appear in an upcoming “NCIS” season 13 episode, titled “Homefront,” which will air on May 3.
“NCIS” showrunner Gary Glasberg has shared in an interview with E!News that the First Lady Obama invited the show’s cast and crew members to film at the White House after conflicts in schedule prevented her from filming the scene at the “NCIS” set in Los Angeles. He also stated how they had an “extraordinary day” shooting the scene at the White House.
“She was just wonderful and welcoming and I can't thank her enough for what she did for our crew. … It was a special day for us,” Glasberg commented.
