Nick Jonas is teaming up with the First Lady and everyone's favorite little red guy Elmo.
This week, stars like Nick, Elmo, Jessica Simpson, and Martha Stewart will join with First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden to draw attention to the needs of military families. On Tuesday, Mrs. Obama and Mrs. Biden launch a national initiative to support U.S. service members and their families with a noon ET event at the White House.
The two will then do a two day tour visiting various communities, businesses and non-profits working to support military families.
On Thursday, more events will be held in Colorado Springs and Columbus, Ohio. Nick Jonas and Elmo are scheduled to appear at one of the Columbus events.
During a January appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show", Mrs. Obama said she would redouble efforts to shine a spotlight on the nation's military families because many Americans may not be aware of the pressure that deployment causes on families. She said military families need help and support.
