“Women of Soul: In Performance at the White House”
As part of their “In Performance at the White House” series, the President and First Lady will invite music legends and contemporary major female artists to the White House for a celebration of the great “foremothers” of American music, with songs expressing the struggles and achievements of women.
The program will include performances by Tessanne Chin, Melissa Etheridge, Aretha Franklin, Ariana Grande, Patti LaBelle, Janelle Monáe and Jill Scott, with Greg Phillinganes as music director.
The entire event will be streamed live at White House Live at 7:30 PM ET and will be broadcast Monday, April 7 on PBS stations nationwide.
As with previous White House music events, the First Lady will host a special daytime workshop for students. The First Lady will welcome 124 middle school, high school and college students from across the country to take part in an interactive student workshop: “I’m Every Woman: The History of Women in Soul.” (11:0 AM ET in the State Dining Room)
