Next month, Bob Dylan, who is still cranking out great songs, performs at the White House as part of a music series sponsored by first lady Michelle Obama.
The theme of the Feb. 10 concert is very personal for both Obamas: “A Celebration of Music from the Civil Rights Movement.”
In addition to Dylan, scheduled performers include Natalie Cole, Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, John Mellencamp, Smokey Robinson, Seal, the Blind Boys of Alabama and the Howard University Choir.
Morgan Freeman and Queen Latifah will emcee the event, which will feature readings from celebrated speeches and other writings of the civil rights era.
