Gary Clark, Jr

Warner Bros. Signee Gary Clark, Jr. performs “Catfish Blues” at the White House

President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama received a soulful group of performers at the White House recently, and one that stood out was new Warner Bros. signee Gary Clark, Jr., with his stirring performance.

Hosted by President and Mrs. Obama, the evening paid homage to the great figures of the Blues and their influence on the cultures of Soul and Rock ‘n Roll. The performance touched close to home for the Obamas because the concert honored the musical form that flourished in the Westside of Chicago. Check out the video below:

Clark has played all over the country at festivals, charity events, and his latest gig at the White House. His latest project, The Bright Lights EP, was released in 2011. Check PBS.org for more info.
