Courtesy of Society of Rock, we have a performance of Paul McCartney at the White House. The occasion was his getting the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song in 2010 (the prize was first awarded in 2007, and other recipients have been Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder, Burt Bacharach and Hal David, Carole King, Billy Joel, Willie Nelson and (this year) Smokey Robinson. Who else, do you think, deserves it?)
The real fun begins with the audience participation at 3:50, and who do you think gets up on the stage and boogies? You’ll recognize some of them, but our current President and his family are up there wailing away as well.
Damn, I’ll miss Obama! Can you even imagine Donald Trump doing something like this? And even if he did, it would be fake.
Wikipedia says this:
On November 18, 2009, the Library announced Sir Paul McCartney as the third recipient of the honor. The ceremony for McCartney was held June 2, 2010, in the East Room of the White House with President Obama and Mrs. Obama in attendance. Performers included McCartney as well as Stevie Wonder, Elvis Costello, Jonas Brothers [WTF? Did Sasha and Melia want them?], Herbie Hancock, Corinne Bailey Rae, Dave Grohl, Faith Hill, Emmylou Harris, Lang Lang and Jack White, with remarks by Jerry Seinfeld.
