7:0 EST: President Obama and the First Lady Host “In Performance at the White House: Women of Soul”
Also at White House Live
How appropriate that you are first, LL!
Nerdy, really sorry for the quick turnover in posts but wanted to do a heads up for the Women of Soul! Thanks a gazillion, Legend.
:grin: :grin: Yep, I made it in, even though my calculations as to when you’re going to post a new thread are waaayyy off! :grin:
This going to sooooo good! Cannot wait for the concert to begin. Women of Soul coming hard, wool hoo!
Dancing shoes on Ceb, I hope?
Good evening Chips, TOD, lurkers, everyone and congrats LL on #1 :) I’m home in time for the WH show – excellent!
Hopefruit, will ya dance with me? :lol:
Your wish is my command! :)
‘I’m home in time for the WH show’
Hi, Hopef! Me too. Me two! ;) ;)
Awesome Vc!! Glad we can all enjoy it together!
I was thinking about this off and on today, and hoping I wouldn’t forget and miss the start. I’m ready.
Just checking: Billy Joel isn’t a Women of Soul, is he?
Is he at the performance?!?!
No, I think. I just feel the need to double-check now before these WH musicy occasions, for fear my night will be ruined. /runs
I just received a text from PBO saying that Billy will in fact BE AT THE PERFORMANCE!
LOL – this Kitty’s face looks exactly as if he/she were thinking or saying those words :)
Can confirm that is exactly what this kitty is saying! It’s the vibes…..
I was going to post the kitty ‘Billy Sucks’ pic, but I thought that would be rude :lol:
Indeed it would be. Billy might be a lurker here for all you know.
Hello Billy. Love you lots – but get a new job.
Aw, he looks like our dear departed Ygnacio.
I just love that you had a cat called Ygnacio – RIP.
The first time I took my missus up to Santa Barbara, we were driving up Hwy 101, and passed Santa Ynez Road. And my missus, fresh from the Midwest, said “What the hell is ‘Why-nez’?!” I have yet to let her forget that.
If Bruce Springsteen can admire Billy Joel, so can you, Miss!
Bruce is just being nice LL, secretly he’s thinking “OMG!!!!!.”
What if Billy is an Obot like his female counterpart Mariah?
That still wouldn’t make up for Billy and Mariah’s crimes against songdom, Hopefruit.
I forget what performance I saw them together, but Bruce was being Bruce and saying that it was a meeting of the Bridge and the Tunnel (Long Island and New Jersey), and as an elitist Manhattanite I was just thinking “Eh, you fucking mooks”. :lol:
:lol: Do we have any Bridge and Tunnel people here? I hope they eat you alive.
You know, I’ve never asked Vicki what part of NYC she lives in.
Tribeca—-but not in a millionaires loft.
Grew up in Washington Heights.
Wooooooooot, streaming has started.
Gloria Estefan!!! She’s there! :)
NooooOOOOoooOOooooOOooooOOooooOOoooOOooo! You are SO bad, Dotster! :lol:
Are you serious?!?!?
No—-just teasing chips—-a little frightening jokey—-(I share her opinion of Estefan)
I really enjoy the immediacy of the original airing; seems more honest.
Oh my. FLOTUS looks lovely!!! :0
FLOTUS does indeed look gorgeous as does our President! And he seems so happy and enthusiastic to be hosting this. Love him!
Watch PBO GET DOOWWWWN to some music!
Tonight Bill deBlasio of NY is joining Rahm Emmanuel of Chicago, Eric Garcetti of LA, and Kaseem Reed (sp?) of Atlanta in Chicago on a Mayors panel hosted by David Axelrod.
However the NY Media are in full-on takedown mode for Mayor deBlasio. The news is all about his sinking poll numbers. They are falling over themselves attempting to destroy this good guy.
The morning after his 73% victory the sorry excuse we have for journalism was saying that it wasn’t really such a great win because turnout was low.
For f–ks sake. This is what politics and governance have come to in our country. Destruction and hate.
I hardly heard anything about Bloomie’s polls – even when they were rock bottom.
This is what happens when you tax the rich……the RWNJ media goes after you. He needs to call PBO on how to keep going.
Here comes Patti doing her warm-up with the “rainbow” song. :) :)
Ok, Patti LaBelle’s tribute to the Obamas has me in floods, just beautiful
Indeed Chips. This woman is 69 years old – and still an amazing live performer!
Patti is a Living Legend!!!!
She’s a wonder, Hopefruit!
Janelle Monae is one of the highly underrated young performers. She’s a stellar singer.
And its because she is a singer vs being a performer. Unfortunately we have more performers than singers today.
Indeed donna. And the peformances are mostly about sex. Michael Jackson was as stellar a performer as he was a singer, but his performances were truly unique and artistic. Not just sexually explicit material devoid of much else.
Patti LaBelle to President Obama: "You have brought class, dignity, endurance to this office; and baby, you've got swag."— Nerdy Wonka (@NerdyWonka) March 07, 2014
Patti LaBelle thanks the Obamas for the 5 years they've been in office classing up the White House and bringing hope to millions.— Nerdy Wonka (@NerdyWonka) March 07, 2014
This is great I am home just in time to watch this show!!! I wish I looked have as good as Patti. She is 2 years older than me. What a women.
I want to tell you that Ms Pattie LaBelle really open up the show. Wow!!!! Pattie.
I see AG Holder and his wife Sharon there. That young girl did pretty good singing the one and only Whitney.

You guys must have better sound on your computers than I do. I’ve checked in to see POTUS and FLOTUS ( so lovely, what a First Couple) but I will watch this on TV when PBS broadcasts it. The computer is fine for speeches but I am picky about how I listen to music.
I’m listening on my computer with a good set of headphones and the live sound is great. :)
Better have a long cord. What if you want to get up and dance?
Hahahaha…I’m dancing while sitting :)
Parenthood in one tweet.
Rule: no eating upstairs. Boy forgets rule, later brings down dishes, breaks them. Gets yelled at. Gets dinner, heads upstairs.
See Rule.— April (@ReignOfApril) March 07, 2014
Been there. Once was so appalled by what my then-teenaged son’s bedroom floor looked like one day (clothes, books, God knows what else strewn around), I asked him to “At least make a path!” He tells his own kids about that “rule” today (I love payback by the grandchildren most of all – Ha!).
Who was the girl that just sang Donna Summer’s Last Dance??? What a voice. She rocked it!
That’s Tessanne Chin, last year’s Voice winner and one of our Jamaican ambassadors.
Fantastic!! Thank you for posting her name. I don’t watch any of the singing contests shows on TV so would have never heard of her. She is extremely talented!

It’s completely fabulous sherijr!
Yep this last song, made me cry, missing Whitney :(
On a sad not :(
Premature Birth Tragedy Inspires Obama Camp Vets To Seek Funds for Obamacare Outreach talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/jeremy-bird…— Donna NoShock (@NoShock) March 07, 2014
Wow; so sorry to hear this. Betsy was our director during the 2008 primary season.
Heard about their incredibly sad loss yesterday. Very brave of them to share this personal story and find some good in the situation by asking for donations to Enroll America so other people can access excellent healthcare that they had. Hope there will be another baby Bird in the future when they’re ready.
Oh that’s heartbreaking. So sad for them.
The audio keeps dropping out for me online…..I can’t stand the annoyance of all that. How’s everyone tonight? I have no idea what I missed today:)

Hey Miss, I just sent you a DM. You may now continue plotzing.
WOW…I commend her for singing a Whitney Houston ballad in front of the President! Takes a helluva lotta courage to do that and hold her own nicely.
A R E T H A ! woohoo!!
ARETHA in the house!!! WOOOO
She looks good. She has lost a boatload of weight. Good for her.
she certainly has
She was amazing :)
These WH concerts are the BEST!!

Ha – Gorgeous! Make that image a dragonfly, and I’m IN! (It’s all about me!)
You think PBO and Holder aren't sending a message having Debo Adegbile right there on the front row tonight? Recess appointment babeeee!!!— Nancy LeTourneau (@Smartypants60) March 07, 2014
POTUS got his head jamming here :)
Soulful heartwarming music, fellowship and good vibes at the People’s House, or toxicity, hate and exclusion at the CPAC rally? Please advise.
BTW, did you notice Debo Adegbile seated next to Eric Holder?
Obama Spoke With Putin On Phone Thursday To Push Diplomatic Solution talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/obama…— Donna NoShock (@NoShock) March 07, 2014
oh my Patti.. hasn’t lost anything now has she :) :) !
Patty, pushing 70 and still hitting those notes and strutting in those heels…
Should have stuck to Plan A–watch concert on PBS later.
The sound keeps dropping out on my computer. Desertflower said she’d had the same problem. Oh well.
Tonight was wonderful. I really enjoyed it. Now I will go watch Rachel Maddow tell us why G.W. Bush went into Iraq.
That was a lot of fun—–for some reason I had great sound from my little ol’ laptop—–maybe cause I have audio at full blast. Lots of great performances. And loved watching PBO and FL swing and sway ——and was amused by some of the other attendees’ “grooviness”. Fun, enjoyable night at the White House!
Man, what an evening! Everyone performer was AMAZING! You can tell POTUS truly enjoyed himself.
