Congratulations to our own Alabama Shakes
who performed for President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for Memphis Soul: In Performance from the White House.
The 'Shakes were joined by Justin Timberlake, Mavis Staples, Ben Harper, and Booker T. Jones and an all-star rhythm section for classics from Memphis and Muscle Shoals. Mavis, Eddie Floyd and Sam Moore perform with undiminished verve and the songs, of course, are strong as ever. Watch for it on your favorite PBS Station.
