Last week, President Obama and wife Michelle, presented “In Performance at The White House: The Motown Sound”, hosted by Academy Award winning actor and singer Jamie Foxx. The star-studded event honored Motown founder Berry Gordy.
Motown legend Smokey Robinson, John Legend, Ledisi, Sheryl Crow, Natasha Bedingfield, Seal, Jordin Sparks and members of the cast of FOX’s “Glee” sang some of the label’s greatest hits.
During the show, Foxx teased the President about his dancing, saying that you couldn’t blame his lack of skills on his black side—which Obama definitely took in stride.
Foxx, who just released his latest studio album “Best Night of My Life”, teamed up with John Legend, Seal and Nick Jonas (of The Jonas Brothers) to sing a few Temptations hits—”Ain’t Too Proud To Beg,” “I Can’t Get Next To You” and “Get Ready.” Check out the performance below.
