Sorry, there will be no “Let’s Stay Together” sing-off with the president tonight. Al Green has cancelled his performance at the White House tonight.
In a statement released through the White House, Green’s rep JR Rich said that the soul legend “has suffered a back injury that will prevent him from traveling. It is an injury he has experienced before and a full recovery is expected.”
Other stars expected tonight for the “Memphis Soul” concert, part of the “In Performance at the White House” series, include Alabama Shakes, William Bell, Steve Cropper, Ben Harper, Queen Latifah, Cyndi Lauper, Joshua Ledet, Sam Moore, Charlie Musselwhite, Mavis Staples and Justin Timberlake, with Booker T. Jones as music director and band leader.
