Wonder, other stars to honor McCartney

May 25, 2010


— The Jonas Brothers, Faith Hill, Stevie Wonder and Jerry Seinfeld are among an all-star lineup that will honor Paul McCartney next month at the White House.

McCartney will receive the third Gershwin Prize for Popular Song from the Library of Congress. It will be presented at a concert June 2 in the East Room of the White House.

Performers announced Monday also will include White Stripes singer and guitarist Jack White, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, Emmylou Harris, Elvis Costello and others.

Last year, President Barack Obama presented Wonder with the nation’s highest award for pop music. Paul Simon won the first Gershwin prize in 2007.

The concert for McCartney will be televised July 28 nationwide on PBS.
