Mick Jagger Performs With the President
Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger was one of the performers at the White House last night and President Barack Obama helped him out on one song.
The West Wing of the White House was transformed into an intimate blues club last night as part of PBS’s In Performance at the White House. Last night’s party was called Red White and Blues and included appearances and performances from Jeff Beck, B.B. King and Mick Jagger.
Mick expressed to those in attendance that he has been a long time fan of blues music and that he was very honored to help America celebrate the genre. During a performance of Sweet Home Chicago, Mick handed off the microphone to President Barack Obama who joined in and sang a few bars of the song, much to the delight of Mick and the rest of the audience.
The show was taped for broadcast and will air Monday, February 27 on your local PBS station.
