Michelle Obama says the beats and melodies in Latin music are so irresistible that even President Barack Obama “will shake his groove thing” Monday night.
Gloria Estefan, Romeo Santos, Lila Downs, Marco Antonio Solis and other top Latin musicians are joining the Obamas to tape the latest installment of the PBS series, “In Performance at the White House.” It will celebrate the various styles of Latin music during Hispanic Heritage Month, which began Sunday.
Obama is scheduled to make brief remarks.
The first lady spoke during a late-morning workshop for local high school students with some of the artists, including Estefan and her husband, Emilio, of Miami Sound Machine.
Monday’s taping will be live-streamed on the White House website, http://www.whitehouse.gov/live , and broadcast nationally by PBS stations on Oct. 8.
