Glee Stars Join PBS White House Special

A few good Gleeks are White House-bound once more, and this time they’re bringing along some of Motown’s biggest hits (and stars!) for a PBS special.

Glee’s Mark Salling and Amber Riley will be performing in the company of President Obama for the second time in a year, taking part in a PBS music special titled The Motown Sound: In Performance at the White House.

The President and First Lady are teaming with the network to host the event in honor of Black History Month and the legendary Motown. Viewers can expect performances from both Glee stars as well as Jamie Foxx, Natasha Bedingfield, Sheryl Crow, Gloriana, Nick Jonas, Ledisi, John Legend, Smokey Robinson, Seal and Jordin Sparks.

The cast of Glee — Salling and Riley included — performed at the White House’s annual Easter Egg Roll last April, singing the National Anthem, “Don’t Stop Believin'” and other hits from the Fox series.

PBS’ The Motown Sound will be taped Thursday, February 24, in Washington D.C., and air Tuesday, March 1 at 8/7c.

Will you tune in to see your favorite Gleeks sing at the White House?

    Most definitely. Amber is my fav from Glee and I wouldn’t miss a chance to hear her sing! She doesn’t get enough opportunities to sing on the show.

    Believe it or not, I only knew certain music artists
    when I saw them on Sesame Street, but I remember most
    of them. Stevie Wonder, Patti Labelle, The Temptations,
    and of course, Smokey Robinson to name just a few.
    Smokey Robinson appeared with Telly and sang, “It Takes Time”,
    and in “U Really Got A Hold On Me” with the letter U.
    I’ve been following most of their careers, ever since,
    so you know I’ll watch Motown In The White House on PBS.
