To help Michelle Obama in her goal to end childhood obesity, a few familiar faces are urging kids to move their body in a new PSA.

In the clip, celebrities like Carly Rae Jepsen, Austin Mahone, American Idol alum Jessica Sanchez and the guys from The Wanted encourage kids to get up and dance using Beyoncé’s workout theme song “Move Your Body.”

In 2011, Queen B teamed up with the First Lady and WAT-AAH! Foundation, which promotes kid’s health through exercise, for the Let’s Move! Flash Workout and offered her song for a music video that features a fun and easy dance routine that everyone can learn. Watch below.

The clip is all in anticipation for the 3rd annual Move Your Body 2013 event on May 1 taking place in schools all around the country. At 1:42pm EDT/10:42am PDT that day, over 250,000 students in over 600 schools are encouraged to get up and move for the annual nationwide youth exercise event.

Special events in New York and Los Angeles include performances from Mindless Behavior, Disney’s Shake It Up star Bella Thorne and fellow Disney actress Coco Jones, who’s currently on the show Good Luck Charlie.
