In Performance at the White House: Fiesta Latina

Written by Holly on Thursday October 15, 2009

FiestaLatinaTake a front row seat Friday night at 9pm for IN PERFORMANCE AT THE WHITE HOUSE "Fiesta Latina," a concert celebrating Latino culture, hosted by the President and Mrs. Obama.

The program was taped Tuesday night on the South Lawn of the White House. PBS quickly edited the footage into a one-hour program and plans to feed it to PBS stations tonight (Thursday). Some stations will air it tonight in place of THE THIS OLD HOUSE HOUR, but OETA is holding it for our Friday night music timeslot of 9pm.

Performers include Marc Anthony (pictured), Jimmy Smits, Pete Escovedo, Gloria Estefan, José Feliciano, George Lopez, Thalía, Tito "El Bambino", the Bachata music group Aventura, and the Chicano rock band Los Lobos, with Sheila E. leading the house band.    

In addition to Friday at 9pm, you can watch IN PERFORMANCE AT THE WHITE HOUSE "Fiesta Latina" on the PBS website starting Thursday evening.
