Sweet Honey with Michelle Obama February 2013

“[Sweet Honey] is one my of my favorite groups in the whole wide world,” -Michelle Obama

First Lady Michelle Obama, who invited Grammy Award-nominated ensemble SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK to perform a special children’s concert at the White House during the first 100 days of President Obama’s initial term, surprised the ladies last night by attending their performance last night at the legendary Howard Theater in Washington, D.C. It marked the first time Ms. Obama has seen Sweet Honey’s show, SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK..A TRIBUTE, LIVE! JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER, which pays homage to the songs of jazz Diva’s Miriam Makeba, Odetta, Abbey Lincoln, Nina Simone and others (also the title of their current double-CD release available on Appleseed Recordings). Pictured back stage after the show are left to right Sweet Honey members; Shirley Childress (American Sign Language interpreter); Louise Robinson; Ysaye Barnwell; the First Lady Michelle Obama, Carol Maillard; and Nitanju Bolade Casel.
