In the episode, titled “All Or Nothing With Me,” Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton) enlists the help of Michelle – as well as other stars like American Idol alum Kellie Pickler – to hold a benefit concert for Luke Wheeler (Will Chase), who has been injured in Afghanistan.

Mrs. Obama, 50, has been busy boosting her television resume as of late. She’s also scored a gig on Thursday’s season finale of Parks and Recreation and has had previous cameos on shows like iCarly and Sesame Street.
