Michelle Obama appeared on The Tonight Show and delivered a special surprise to some of her supporters.

A select handful of Americans were given the opportunity to bid farewell to Michelle Obama in a recorded speech of their own on The Tonight Show last night.

“Because of you, I know that my race does not define who I am or what I can accomplish,” one woman says as she stands in front of a portrait of the first lady. Another likens the first lady to “those special teachers you never forget.”
