(Newser) – Have you seen Obama's latest appearance? No … not that Obama. The former president's daughter, Malia Obama, appeared in a new music video, marking her "onscreen debut," TMZ reports. (Click its link to see it.) The band is the New Dakotas (made of up of Harvard seniors) and the song is "Walking on Air," per the Hill. In her brief appearances in the video, Obama, a Harvard sophomore, lip-syncs, dances, and pretends to play the harmonica. However, after the story broke, Malia seems to have been edited out of the official video—though the TMZ link still has the version with Obama in it. The former first daughter has some previous show business experience, as a PA on the film Extant and as an intern at the Weinstein Company. (Earlier this year, Barack and Michelle Obama signed a deal with Netflix.)
