Green was a hot topic, not only for Obama. At a Q&A session moderated by GRAMMY Museum executive director Robert Santelli, Timberlake recalled one of his favorite memories of the annual music awards show.
“So not only am I taken aback from his entrance, but now I have a visual of a holy bath full of bubbles and the Rev. Al Green gets a phone call. And he runs into his closet — because this is how my sketch comedy mind works — he runs into his closet like Clark Kent and comes out like Superman,” Timberlake said to laughs from the crowd.
The workshop came as a precursor to a Tuesday evening event featuring performances from the workshop’s musicians. The event will be live-streamed and filmed for a broadcast of “In Performance at the White House” on PBS stations on April 16.
