BB King, Mick Jagger, Buddy Guy, Jeff Beck, Keb Mo and many others come to the White House in a celebration of the blues. Take a look inside the rehearsals and hear what artists had to say about being at the White House and the magis that is blues music. As President Obama said, "this music speaks to something universal. No one goes through life without both joy and pain, triumph and sorrow. The blues gets all of that, sometimes with just one lyric or one note.
