The Democratic party is gearing up for the National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The first lady will highlight the first slate of speakers at the Democratic National Convention.

She'll be the last speaker Tuesday, following a video presentation of her life.
Tuesday's appearance is just part of the First Lady's presence during the convention.
She will be meeting with various caucuses and delegations over the course of the week.
