Before the power goes out in this latest snow squall, we'd like to share with you a few highlights from last night's taping of IN PERFORMANCE AT THE WHITE HOUSE: A CELEBRATION OF MUSIC FROM THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT. Press from The Washington Post, The New York Times and USA Today managed to attend yesterday's festivities, and all have published articles out today (or posted very late last night on their website), with nice placement for in the print editions. See the links below if you'd like to read what they had to say.
It was truly a momentous occasion, as Bob Dylan performed "The Times They Are A-Changin'" for the 1st time in 30 years for a live audience...not to mention it was his first-ever performance at the White House. Joan Baez called for a singalong from the invited audience, and got one, on “We Shall Overcome." Yolanda Adams, a gospel luminary, sang “A Change Is Gonna Come,” while Jennifer Hudson and Smokey Robinson traded lines on “People Get Ready.” Natalie Cole sang “I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free,” and President Obama joined the closing all-star singalong for “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing,” often known as the black national anthem. Your viewers are in for an unforgettable treat!
