obama June 4, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): Sir James Paul McCartney, the renowned English singer and songwriter, had been extremely desirous of enacting a song at the White House, the residence of any powerful American President.

McCartney received an opportunity to do that on Wednesday night and he captured it with both hands. He rendered a fabulous performance at an East Room gig by singing ‘Michelle’. We do know that the White House is presently occupied by Barack Obama and his wife, who is named, Michelle Obama. The loving words of the song, ‘Michelle’, were directly aimed at Michelle Obama by McCartney. Subsequent to McCartney crooning to the First Lady the lines, ‘I love you, I love you, I love you’, he jocosely declared that he might be the initial chap ever to get kicked out by an American President. This hilarious remark of McCartney generated widespread laughter in the room.

However, President Obama, the gentleman that he is, did not exhibit any sign of displeasure as he swung to the beat in the company of his wife, who was uttering the lines along with McCartney.

The gig, which continued for nearly 90 minutes, revolved around the presidential conferral of the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song to McCartney. The President stated that McCartney had contributed to laying the soundtrack for a whole generation. McCartney declared that the conferment of this prize was a delightful moment for him and that the White House was a terrific place to perform.

The gig had a starry array of high-flying artistes, who executed their own versions of some of McCartney’s most popular songs. McCartney declared that listening to what other personalities did to his music was a stimulating experience.

Among those delivering renditions were Stevie Wonder, the Jonas Brothers, Faith Hill, Elvis Costello, Emmylou Harris, Herbie Hancock, White Stripes singer and guitarist Jack White. The Gershwin prize is provided in the name of the songwriting fraternal duo, George and Ira Gershwin.

McCartney, a successful entrepreneur, is also a dedicated endorser of humane treatment for animals, of vegetarianism, and for musical teaching. McCartney, one of Britain’s most opulent males, has energetically been involved in movements against landmines, seal killing, and Third World arrears.
