Hey Jude at The White House

Yes­ter­day, Pres­i­dent Oba­ma award­ed the Gersh­win Prize For Pop­u­lar Song to Sir Paul McCart­ney. (Watch it here). Then, the good part. McCart­ney took to the stage and per­formed the Bea­t­les clas­sic Michelle (the ref­er­ence is obvi­ous), Eleanor Rig­by, and Hey Jude, dur­ing which he was joined by Jack White, Ste­vie Won­der, Dave Grohl and oth­ers. You can watch a small clip of that per­for­mance above. PBS will air the com­plete per­for­mance on July 28.
