DVR Alert: The Motown Sound at the White House (video)

If you grew up on Motown music and love it, then like me you should mark your calendar for The Motown Sound in Performance at the White House. It airs on PBS March 1, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. central time and 8:00 p.m. eastern. According to The Root, this tribute is part of the White House's celebration of Black History Month and the show was recorded Thursday night.

Watch the full episode. See more In Performance at The White House.


At the PBS website, you can watch celebrity interviews with young performers Jordin Sparks, Natasha Bedingfield, and Ledisi who are singing Supremes classics. And of course, aside from President Barack Obama and FLOTUS Michelle, the celebration includes legends such as Berry Gordy, Motown's founder, Smokey Robinson and Stevie Wonder as well as singers such as Cheryl Crow, Jamie Foxx, and John Legend. If Diana Ross is not included I'll be surprised;however, I didn't see her name. Nevertheless, that diva will be on the Oprah Winfrey Show later today and that's almost as good as being at the White House.
