The White House "reverberated like a long-ago basement sound studio in Detroit" on Thursday (Feb. 24), reports the Associated Press. The occasion: a PBS In Performance at the White House, "The Motown Sound." Performers included Smokey Robinson, John Legend, Seal and Stevie Wonder — first lady Michelle Obama confessed he's her favorite, "yes indeed." And Motown founder Berry Gordy was in the audience.
