The Obamas Host John Legend And Jamie Foxx At The White House For A MOTOWN Concert

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama celebrated rhythm and blues with a special Motown concert at the White House last night staring Smokey Robinson, John Legend and Jamie Foxx.  The concert will air on PBS next week.  Deets inside...

 

Smokey Robinson headlined PBS' "The Motown Sound: In Performance at the White House," last night with special guests Jamie Foxx and John Legend, who performed Motown hits.

President Obama welcomed a slew of stars to the stage like Natasha Bedingfield, Gloriana, Nick Jonas, Ledisi, Amber Riley, Mark Salling, Seal and Jordin Sparks.

Oscar winning Jamie Foxx wowed the crowd.

And so did John Legend.

The event will air on PBS on March 1.

I can't wait to see this special.  This is a great lineup of talent.

When times are this hard, and

When times are this hard, and taxes are breaking workers back (i.e. the middle income class), this is when the Obama's think they should use the place we voted them to be--to make decisions on how to change this lousy economy-- into catching up on life they never had before. Since they moved into the white house, any and every cracker can get access into the place. Is it the ultimate party house or is it a place where the state of America is decided. When he was knocking doors of common people back in 2007/2008, when he was still a poor senate looking for the opportunity to become the first black president, had I been aware that this was how the white house was going to be run, maybe i'd have thought about my vote more critically in December 2008. They sure do lose my vote in the next elections, simply put, nothing changed in my life the last three years!!!! We should just "Motown" away, whiles China takes over the first world in a few years.

THANK U. Now i think u r the

THANK U. Now i think u r the first person, who has really broken this down to the hilt. All politicians I've come to realize are the same. The moment they step into that house, they forget about the promises they made when they wanted ur vote. All they can think about is, "how am i going to make a name for myself, and ensure a comfortable life for myself and my family, after i'm kicked off this position." And that is all they look forward to my friend, the rest of us can wallow in poverty for all they care. It is the same ol' Sh**t every where u go. But then, i wonder why we always go beyond ourselves to put in place another bastard every time, when we get nothing out of it?? SHM
