Jagger, B.B. King, Ready to Sing Blues for Obama

Mick Jagger, B.B. King and other musical greats are teaming up at the White House to celebrate the blues.

Jagger tweeted that President Barack Obama popped in during a rehearsal for Tuesday's A-list concert and "seemed really relaxed and happy!"

Grammy-winner Keb Mo joked during a break in Tuesday morning's rehearsal that Obama himself would be performing three numbers, and there was a record in the works.

Mo joked that Obama's record would be called, "After the second term, now I can finally get my groove on."

Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews says he's ready to back up the president on trombone should Obama decide to grab a microphone and sing.

The blues concert will be part of the "In Performance at the White House" series that airs on PBS.
