*Queen Latifah, Usher and Smokey Robinson are headed to the White House on Wednesday to help celebrate the arts with the First Family.

They’ll be joined by James Taylor, Audra McDonald, Trombone Shorty and others for a PBS special hosted by President Barack Obama and First Lady, Michelle. The event will mark the 50th anniversary of legislation that created the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Carol Burnett is scheduled to perform special readings.

FLOTUS plans a student workshop with Robinson, Keb’ Mo, MC Lyte, Esperanza Spalding and others before the evening performance.
