Rogers made sure that the Obamas were showcasing the best of the best at their White House Poetry Jam. Esperanza Spalding, 24, is a 2005 recipient of the Boston Jazz Society scholarship for outstanding musicianship. Spalding was just one of the talented guests that performed for the First Lady and President Obama during the special evening of spoken word and jazz.
The Obamas have had performances by Stevie Wonder, Earth, Wind & Fire and now a Poetry Jam at the White House at just over 100 days of the President being in office. Who do you think is next to perform at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?
