We’ve already seen video of Paul McCartney’s “Hey Jude” singalong with President Obama, Kevin Jonas and others at the White House, where the former Beatle was honored June 2 with the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize. Now, another video has been released, this time of Jack White’s heartfelt performance of the classic Beatles track “Mother Nature’s Son.”
Video: Jack White covers the Beatles at the White House
Playing in front of an audience that included President Obama, Stevie Wonder, Elvis Costello and McCartney, White captured the song’s somber feeling while performing with an acoustic guitar and no backing band. The entire event, which surely featured more memorable performances like White’s, will finally air July 28 on PBS.
