White House celebrates Motown

    President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama are commemorating Black History Month by honoring Motown.
    The president and the first lady will invite music legends and contemporary artists to participate in The Motown Sound: In Performance at the White House.
    The concert will pay tribute to the record label, celebrating its 50-year legacy. Smokey Robinson, Ledisi, Jamie Foxx, John Legend, Seal and Jordin Sparks are all slated to hit the stage performing some of biggest hits to come out of Motown, the legendary record company founded by Berry Gordy in Detroit in 1959.
    It will all go down February 24 at 6:30 p.m. in the East Room. If you didn’t get an invite, don’t worry. PBS will broadcast "The Motown Sound: In Performance at the White House" on March 1 at 8 p.m. EST.
