Justin Timberlake & Michelle Obama

Justin Timberlake, along with Mavis Staples, Ben Harper, an others, performed at the White House last night for an evening celebrating Memphis soul music. Earlier in the day, he joined FLOTUS Michelle Obama to teach a workshop called Soulsville USA: The History Of Memphis Soul, where they taught the long lineage of the city’s music for middle and high school students. The performances will air on PBS series In Performance At The White House on 4/16, but you can preview Timberlake’s rendition of Otis Redding tear-jerker “(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay” below.

    hmph. ‘dick in a box’ would’ve been WAY better.

  2. Republicans are going to love the video of Obama singing “sitting on the dock of the bay / wasting time…”

  3. for those of you that thrive on “dick in a box” I suppose you’re right.
