WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama is putting on a show at the White House next week for singer-songwriter Carole King.
She is the first woman to receive the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song from the Library of Congress.
The White House says Obama will present the award to King during a concert Wednesday. The program will include performances by King, Gloria Estefan, Billy Joel, Jesse McCartney, Emeli Sande, James Taylor and Trisha Yearwood.
King's hits during five decades of songwriting include You've Got a Friend, So Far Away and (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.
Wednesday's concert will be the latest in the In Performance at the White House series. It will be streamed live on www.whitehouse.gov, and broadcast nationally by PBS stations on May 28.
