WH talent show draws stars, students

The White House is holding its first talent show hosted by Michelle Obama, and celebs including “Sex and the City” star Sarah Jessica Parker, “Twelve Years a Slave” actress Alfre Woodard, and “Modern Family’s” Jesse Tyler Ferguson are all poised to be there.

Students from Turnaround Arts schools across the country, a national program integrating the arts into local schools, will perform at the White House’s inaugural talent show next Tuesday.

No word on what Parker and Woodard, who are both members of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities and are slated to participate at the event, will do there in terms of talent.

Musicians Shane Shanahan, Troy ”Trombone Shorty” Andrews, Kojiro Umezaki and Cristina Pato will also perform at the talent-filled festivities.

The audience at the presidential talent show will likely look a bit different than one you’d find at a high school auditorium. Besides Ferguson, “Harold and Kumar” star (and former Obama administration staffer) Kal Penn, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, and “House of Payne’s” Doc Shaw are expected to attend.
