The Obamas will celebrate Black History Month with a series of performances featuring Motown artists Feb. 24, according to the Associated Press.
President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will host the event, scheduled to include performers Smokey Robinson, Sheryl Crow and John Legend. The event will be taped live and broadcast on PBS March 1 at 8 p.m.
“The event will include legends from Motown’s golden age and performances by artists from today, all in tribute to Motown’s 50-year legacy,” the White House said, according to USA Today.
Other performers include Natasha Bedingfield, Jamie Foxx, Gloriana, Nick Jonas, Ledisi, Amber Riley, Mark Salling, Seal and Jordin Sparks, with Greg Phillinganes as the night’s music director.
The event is the latest of an Obama-hosted music series called “In Performance at the White House,” which includes musical tributes in various genres, including jazz, country and Broadway.
