Paul McCartney Sings “Michelle” to Michelle Obama

03 Jun

Paul McCartney was honored last night with the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, and his evening at the White House was filled with reverent tributes, raucous performances, and a bit of humor. “After the last eight years, it’s good to have a president that knows what a library is,” McCartney said after thanking the Library of Congress for the prize. He also sang “Michelle” to the first lady, while speculating that “I’m gonna be the first guy to get punched out by a president.” Not so: President Obama simply joined in the serenade to his wife, the Washington Post reports. Other artists, from Dave Grohl to Corinne Bailey Rae, also performed McCartney’s hits—with the Jonas Brothers, who sang “Drive My Car,” being the obvious favorite of the first daughters. PBS will air the program on July 28.
