Did another Ambassador die? It's time for another party? Where's JZ and Beyonce, the Benghazi twins?

Guess American taxpayers are forced to pay for this party too. Bush never invited all this trash to the WH.

Great News! American taxpayers are paying for this. Its the 10th live concert at the WH of the Obamas, and with all their vacations-pretty nice life he has.

I wonder who they were highlighting that type of music to? We all would like to go to concerts. We just can't afford the high cost of the tickets.

What happened to the days when REAL musicians and artists like Casals, Horowitz and Rubinstein played at the White House?
