Annapolis had a visit from First Lady Michelle Obama on Sunday, who rolled into town for a Rachelle Ferrell concert at Rams Head, according to The Capital

"Apparently not everyone's watching the Oscars," 103 WRNR tweeted Sunday night, retweeting this juicy tidbit: "@RamsHeadGroup: First Lady Michelle Obama at Rachelle Ferrell show tonight."

Just before the 5 p.m. show in Annapolis, Secret Service members arrived to check out Rams Head on West Street, The Capital reported.

Obama reportedly attended the two-hour jazz show with her friend, Dr. Sharon Malone, whose husband is the attorney general, along with two other women at a table where the ladies shared a bottle of wine.

The first lady and her guests were "gone in 15 seconds" in their motorcade after the show, and few people knew they were there, The Baltimore Sun reported, noting that a member of Obama's staff did stop backstage to thank the band for the performance.

In recent months, the first lady revealed that she is working on her own album, a hip-hop compilation called "Songs for a Healthier America," according to Rolling Stone.

And for another concert earlier this year, she didn't have to leave home—good friend Beyonce serenaded Obama for the first lady's fiftieth birthday in January, according to CNN.

Fantastic. She takes her work very seriously. She is putting together her exercise album and going out to see how people react to the music first hand. That way, she can feel assured that children/adults will play, dance and enjoy the experience.

I'm so happy to read that Michelle Obama is a fan of Rachelle Ferrell. Rachelle is one of the most incredible singers on the planet!
