Sir Paul McCartney joins Jonas Brothers, Jerry Seinfeld for White House concert

Hollywoodnews.com: Paul McCartney’s long and winding road apparently will be bringing him to the White House.

The former Beatle has agreed to perform in a concert being held in his honor next week when he appears in Washington to accept an award from President Barrack Obama. McCartney, according to the BBC, will receive the third annual Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, then join the likes of Dave Grohl and Stevie Wonder in the East Room for a musical gig.

Paul Simon won the inaugural prize. Wonder won it last year, so McCartney is in great company.

The concert eventually will be televised on July 28, when audiences will be able to see McCartney, Wonder, Faith Hill, Elvis Costello, The Jonas Brothers, White Stripes singer Jack White and Jerry Seinfeld — all scheduled to perform.
