Dylan, Mellencamp, Smokey Robinson to play White House Civil Rights gig

Bob Dylan, John Mellencamp, Smokey Robinson, Natalie Cole, Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, Seal, and The Blind Boys of Alabama are among the names set to perform at next month’s “In Performance at the White House: A Celebration of Music from the Civil Rights Movement,” TFB reports. As the title conveys, the concert is the first installment in the White House’s 2010 Music Series, and will take place starting at 5:15 p.m. ET on February 10th in the East Room. Morgan Freeman and Queen Latifah will be holding down the emcee duties.

The concert will be streamed live on whitehouse.gov and televised on February 11th at 8:00 p.m. ET on public broadcasting stations nationwide.

Now that we got the music covered, how about we fix this little situation, Barack?
