Mick Jagger Performs at Obama’s Black History Month Concert

Via McClatchy:

The White House celebrated the heritage of blues music Tuesday with a star-studded concert and a workshop by Michelle Obama, who admitted she can’t sing or play an instrument.

“But you can,” the first lady told a group of students from across the country who sat rapt as a panel of blues musicians shared their craft. “Remember that you’re grooming to be the next greatest something. … It starts with believing that you can be there.”

Hours later, the musicians were to take to a White House stage for the “Red, White and Blues” celebration — the latest in the “In Performance at the White House” series. . .

Tune in February 27 on PBS to watch the concert, too. - Greg Pollowitz
