It’s one thing to play in front of the President of the United States at the White House. Last month, Jack White not only did that but he covered a Beatles’ song right in front of Paul McCartney. The reason for such an event came with the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize, which this year celebrated the musical career of Paul McCartney. White covered “Mother Nature’s Son” in front of a rather large audience, and the performance had yet to be seen by those outside of the East Room until PBS released a video of the performance July 21. White was one of several artists to perform that evening. Other performances included Elvis Costello, Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney, and more. The performances are set to air on PBS on July 28.
