Michelle Obama used the South by Southwest Music Festival to show off her vocal chops and make a quick announcement — she’s not running for president.

The first lady made her debut on Wednesday at the showcase of buzzworthy bands and technology. She sat with Grammy winners Queen Latifah and Missy Elliot to talk about girls’ education and empowerment.

Obama broke into song when reflecting on seven years in the White House. She said “time is almost up” before softly singing some of the Boyz II Men hit “It’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.”

Obama says she’ll most miss interacting with people as first lady — and says she has no presidential aspirations.

President Barack Obama spoke at the festival last week.
