Michelle Obama has no plans to run for president

Michelle Obama showed off her vocal chops at the South by Southwest Music Festival but drew a round of disappointed sighs when she told the crowd she had no plans to run for president.

The first lady made her debut at the Austin showcase of buzzworthy bands and technology on Wednesday, sitting with Grammy winners Queen Latifah and Missy Elliott to talk about girls' education and empowerment.

But Mrs. Obama broke into song when reflecting on seven years in the White House. She said "time is almost up" before softly singing some of the Boyz II Men hit "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday."

Mrs. Obama says she'll most miss interacting with people as first lady but says she has no presidential aspirations of her own.

She mentioned her teenage daughters, Malia and Sasha, as two of the main reasons.
