These are some of my fav videos and I do watch them quite often. Reg is so cute and I love the way the Obama's really welcomed her and seem to have really enjoyed her beautiful whimsical voice! Michelle cheers her on and Barack gives her the thumbs up! Regina's little slip up is so endearing, reminds me of why I love her so much, altho I don't need reminding! I listen to regina on a daily basis.
The White House concert series-
Performing at a reception honoring Jewish American Heritage Month, Spektor tackled renditions of “Us” and “The Sword and the Pen” in front of an audience that included the likes of President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and Vice President Joe Biden, and as I like to say, "that guy from SNL". Haha. And who said being President didn’t have its perks…
A better sound from a different angle. I like this one!
(May 27, 2010) Regina Spektor performed at The White House for the first ever White House reception in honor of Jewish American Heritage Month. Spektor joined President Obama and his wife to "celebrate the range and depth of the Jewish American heritage and contributions to American culture."
"Having moved to America from Soviet Russia as a child with my family, we dreamed of reconnecting with our religious traditions and of making America our home" says Spektor, in a statement. "Having lived here for over twenty years, it is an unimaginable honor to be invited to the White House by President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, to an event celebrating Jewish Americans, and to be counted among them. Nothing in the world could make us feel more accepted and at home!"
The celebration took place in The White House with guests including a range of community leaders and prominent Jewish Americans from Olympians and professional athletes to members of Congress, business leaders, authors and military veterans.
I ♥ Reg!
