Justin Timberlake, Queen Latifah, Al Green to Perform for President Obama
Justin Timberlake is definitely going to put on a suit and tie for his upcoming performance.
The R&B singer has been tapped to appear at a special concert hosted by the Obamas. The show is meant to be in celebration of the Memphis soul sound.
JT, a Memphis native, joins a notable list of performers for the concert, to include Queen Latifah, Al Green, Sam Moore, Mavis Staples and the Alabama Shakes, among others.
We're hoping that President Obama will jump onstage and perform 'Let's Stay Together' with Green. Last year, a video of the POTUS' rendition of the soul ballad went viral.
As for Timberlake, he probably won't perform 'Suit & Tie' at the event. But with his band, the Tennessee Kids, backing him up, he may sing 'That Girl' from 'The 20/20 Experience,' which is a hat-tip to the soulful Memphis sound.
The star-studded concert is part of the 'In Performance at the White House' series slated to air on April 9.
PBS will broadcast the special featuring Timberlake on April 16 at 8 p.m. ET.
