As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Another Command Performance Ordered Up

President and Mrs. Obama will host a tribute to Gospel music at the White House Tuesday. They’ve done this with a variety of musical genres. And they get very good seats.

From the White House:

The President and First Lady will invite music legends and top contemporary artists to the White House as part of its “In Performance at the White House” series. The event will pay tribute to the fundamental role gospel music has played in the American musical tradition and the important artists and repertoire that have marked its vibrant history. The program will include performances by Bishop Rance Allen, Pastor Shirley Caesar, Aretha Franklin, Rodney Crowell, Rhiannon Giddens, Emmylou Harris, Darlene Love, Lyle Lovett, Tamela Mann, the Morgan State University Choir, and Michelle Williams — with T Bone Burnett as executive music director and Billy Maxwell as music director. “The Gospel Tradition: In Performance at the White House” will be broadcast Friday, June 26, 2015 at 9:00 PM ET on PBS stations nationwide (check local listings). The program will also be simulcast on TV One.

As with previous White House music events, the First Lady will host a special daytime workshop for students. The First Lady will welcome more than 130 middle school, high school and college students from across the country to take part in an interactive student workshop: “The History of Gospel Music.” Beginning at 11:00 AM in the State Dining Room, Robert Santelli, Executive Director of The GRAMMY Museum® in Los Angeles, will give participating students an overview of the origins of gospel music, discuss important artists and explore the unique elements of gospel that have inspired the sound of other American musical genres.

    • The front peeps O and M party while ValJar plots back at the WH.

      The evil little gnome is working on the Bilderberg version of what the world should be.
      Bilderberg member speaks
      “Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure — one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”
      – David Rockefeller, “Memoirs”

  1. I have no issue with bringing good music to the WH, this has been done for years. But the self indulgent nature of it irks me. Us commoners have to pay hundreds, sit in the upper balcony to see such acts, why not them too?

    H

  2. At least that entire middle east fiasco, ticking disaster is all fixed!

    Now time to party. Don’t worry another vacation is around corner to decompress from hosting this big party.

  3. So… is this a Gospel music concert where the performers will have to exclude songs/references to Jesus? Or will they have to be “diverse” and “inclusive,” and perhaps swap out “Jesus” lyrics for “Muhammut” lyrics? Not sure about how the protocols for Gospel concerts hosted by anti-Christians are supposed to work…

    • Very smart post! Yeah, Obama insults Christians but he likes the music. Low class Obama talking BS and lies about Christian love at Easter when he has no love for Jews, Christians and Americans in any way shape or form, he is devoid of integrity, rspect, character, truthfulness, his whole “presidency” is what he can say and do and get away with. No work, just insults and golf, he gets off on any stupidity he can come up with. Must be on drugs and/low I.Q. most likely both.He is such a coward, before he talks hate and trash against Christians, HE CALLS HIMSELF A CHRISTIAN to protect himself! A liar and devilish like the Iranians said today.They got his number and so does Putin and Israel have his number. Liar and the devil.
