Obama Hosts Gospel Music Night

Obama said gospel music, more than any other genre, helped to shape America.

Obama said that gospel music had evolved over time but that its heart remained true and still had an unmatched power to strike the deepest chord in everyone.

The concert was the latest in the "In Performance at the White House" series of broadcasts by PBS. Tuesday's concert is scheduled to air on June 26 in the United States.

Performers included the queen of soul Aretha Franklin, and other big names such as Bishop Rance Allen, Shirley Caesar, Rodney Crowell, Rhiannon Giddens, Emmylou Harris, Darlene Love, Lyle Lovett, and Tamela Mann.
