If you’re a musician and you’re invited to perform for the president at the White House, you’ve essentially ascended into legendary status. That being said, most musicians that perform at the White House are usually already legends.
But my point is that no matter who performs at the White House, it is always a memorable occasion. B.B. King’s performance was no different. Yes, any performance from B.B. King is legendary, but when you combine the elements of B.B. King and the iconic setting of the White House, you have a recipe for magic. The proof is here.
What you’re about to watch is B.B. King, Mick Jagger, and many others take to the stage and perform Sweet Home Chicago. The performance is already great and all truly seems normal at first, but B.B. King passes the mic to President Obama, and what happens next is amazing! See for yourself!
