So it wasn’t much a of surprise that the White House brought in pop star Katy Perry for an unannounced performance at a reception honoring the Special Olympics on Thursday night.
The star-studded gala in the East Room included Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Andy Roddick, Dikembe Mutombo, Steve Case, Stevie Wonder and all of the children of Eunice Kennedy Shriver, the founder of Special Olympics.
