Bob Dylan and Natalie Cole are among the performers President Barack Obama will welcome to the White House next month for a concert celebrating music of the civil rights movement.

The White House on Tuesday said Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, and John Mellencamp will perform Feb. 10 in a concert to be broadcast the next evening. Smokey Robinson, Seal, and the Blind Boys of Alabama also are on the program, which will be hosted by Morgan Freeman and Queen Latifah.

The evening will include the Obamas and readings from civil rights speeches.

Earlier in the day, Mrs. Obama plans to have 120 high school students meet with the performers to talk about music's influence on the civil rights movement.
