From the Washington Post:
Obamas to Honor Wonder
President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama plan to host a concert Wednesday in the White House’s East Room in honor of Stevie Wonder, reports The Post’s DeNeen Brown. Wonder is to be awarded a Gershwin Prize for Lifetime Achievement from the Library of Congress.
Wonder’s songs “Higher Ground” and “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” were played often during Obama’s campaign. And it was the performance last month by Wonder, along with Usher and Shakira, that pulled the Obamas out of their chairs and set them to dancing during the inaugural concert at the Lincoln Memorial.
Wednesday’s concert is scheduled to be shown Thursday on PBS as part of the network’s “In Performance at the White House” series and to celebrate Black History Month, the White House announced yesterday.
