The Harvard University student and daughter of former first couple Barack and Michelle Obama appears in the indie rock band video “Walking on Air,” by Boston band New Dakotas. According to TMZ, the band members — Chris Haley, Scott Roberts, Alasdair MacKenzie, and Juan Carlos Fernandez del Castillo — also attend Harvard. The song is on the band’s April album, Marsh Street.

Fans should note that the former first daughter doesn’t appear in every version of the music video — on the band’s website and on YouTube, Malia is inexplicably nowhere to be found (as fans gripe in the comments section). A representative from the New Dakotas did not respond to Yahoo Lifestyle’s request for comment.
Malia has been dabbling in entertainment, having completed high school internships on the sets of the HBO series Girls and CBS’s Extant, where she was a production assistant. She also interned at the Weinstein Company, shortly before the #MeToo movement broke out.
