Andrews said before the concert he got a chill just hearing King play a few notes during rehearsal. He added that he was hoping to learn something _ and maybe even borrow a few moves _ from the veterans in the group.

Even in rehearsal, Andrews said, Jagger “was in character right away like he was playing in a stadium _ all of the moves and things. I’m like, I’m going to steal some of those.”

At an afternoon blues workshop for middle school and high school students visiting the White House, Mrs. Obama declared, “Today, we’ve got the blues _ but in a very good way.” She called the blues an “art form that stirs our souls, and it helps us rise above all our struggles.”

The blues concert will be part of the “In Performance at the White House” series that airs on PBS. This one, designed to recognize Black History Month, will be broadcast on Monday on PBS stations and aired later on American Forces Network.
