Pop star Ciara teamed up with the Biden White House on Wednesday to promote coronavirus vaccinations for children.

The “1, 2 Step” singer, who is married to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, appeared at the White House along with her three children, all of whom are under the age of 8.

“He walked in excited, a little nervous,” she said of her son at the podium in the White House briefing room Wednesday.

The singer and her children joined Dr. Jill Biden — who is not a medical doctor — to wave at President Biden from a White House balcony before he departed for a trip to Michigan.

Ciara’s advocacy comes as the White House pushes vaccinations on children. “Parents of children ages 5 and over: Please get them vaccinated,” Biden pled earlier this month.

“Because here’s the deal: Children make up one-quarter of the cases in this country and while rare, children can get very sick from COVID-19 and some can end up, few can end up hospitalized,” he continued.
