CHARLOTTE, N.C. —

First lady Michelle Obama arrived in Charlotte on Monday afternoon, ahead of her speech on Tuesday.

She is the biggest name yet to show up at the Time Warner Cable Arena.

She went to the arena around 4 p.m. Monday and did several interviews.

She came out onto the stage for a few minutes, walked around it and looked at the podium, waved to some people in the crowd and then she was off.

It is the start of a busy few days for her as she visits with various groups in Charlotte.

Tuesday night, the first lady will speak at the opening night of the convention at Time Warner Cable Arena.

Wednesday, she will give speeches to the African American caucus, the Hispanic caucus and go to a lunch honoring LGBT elected officials with the human rights campaign.

On Thursday, the first lady will join Vice President Joe Biden to pack care boxes to send to troops overseas and then speak at a women's caucus event.

Thursday night will be the keynote event, when her husband takes the stage to accept the party nomination and give his own speech.
