“Women of Soul: In Performance at the White House” is a celebration of American women artists whose work has left an indelible and profound impact on our national musical culture. Aretha Franklin, Melissa Etheridge, Patti LaBelle, Jill Scott, Janelle Monáe, Tessanne Chin, and Ariana Grande bring blues, jazz, soul, R&B, and Rock and Roll together at the White House.

Reasons Why You Should Watch “Women of Soul” from Beginning to End:

  1. It is in honor of Women’s History Month (March 2014).
  2. The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, performs. Do you need any other reason?
  3. Mr. President Obama is funny when he gives his introduction speech.
  4. Aretha Franklin will have you in tears during her “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” performance.
  5. Shirley Bassey’s (“one of the most popular female vocalists in Britain during the last half of the 20th century”)  song is covered by Janelle Monáe.
  6. Tessanne Chin sings Donna Summers’ “Last Dance”.
  7. The performers gather together to sing Tina Turner’s “Rolling On The River” and it will make you dance.

Thank you so much PBS for sharing this amazing experience online for everyone to see.

lots of virtual hugs 💙
