A Celebration of Blues

The White House, in celebration of African American History Month, held a workshop and live performance at the White House with some of America's best Blues artists.

First Lady Michelle Obama addressed students from various schools around the country in a Blues workshop where she told them to never sell themselves short.  "Anything is possible" she said to the blues music lovers and future musicians.

The White House State dining room was filled with the sound of Blues music as Blues artists B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Trombone Shorty, along with Mick Jagger delighted a crowd that included President Obama singing with Sweet Home Chicago.
