Watch Michelle Obama's SXSW Keynote

Watch the live stream here.

Over the last week, Barack and Michelle Obama have been spending plenty of time mixing it up in the pop culture and music sphere. Last week, the President spoke at SXSW Interactive, giving a keynote that touched on the uses of technology in government, from Apple's conflict with the Dept. of Justice over security to what the government would need to do to attract tech workers. On Monday, the White House hosted the cast of the blockbuster Broadway musical Hamilton, with the President collaborating with Hamilton's writer and star, Lin-Manuel Miranda, on a freestyle rap in the Rose Garden.

Today, Michelle Obama will speak at SXSW Music, hosting a keynote to discuss Let Girls Learn, a White House initiative dedicated to educating young girls around the world. She will share the stage with Missy Elliott, Diane Warren, Sophia Bush and Queen Latifah, who will moderate the panel, which is scheduled to start at 10:30 a.m. in Austin. You can watch a live stream of that panel right here, or at
