President Obama couldn’t wait to get a sneak peek at tonight’s concert in the White House featuring Rolling Stones’ famed front man Mick Jagger.
The musician tweeted earlier Tuesday that the president popped in for a few songs while he was rehearsing for tonight’s event.
“Met President Obama who listened to a few tunes during rehearsal he seemed really relaxed and happy!” Jagger tweeted.
Meanwhile, L'Wren Scott, Jagger’s longtime girlfriend, tweeted it was “amazing to meet the president” and we “loved every moment.”
Jagger is among several legendary musicians invited to play at a concert in the East Room Tuesday night in recognition of Black History Month. The performance, called Red, White, and Blues, features other such famed performers as B. B. King, Buddy Guy, Keb Mo and Gary Clarke Jr. Trombone Shorty.
The event is to be broadcast on PBS next week.
