Trisha Yearwood is helping honor a songwriting legend. The country star is among those who took part in an event at the White House last week saluting Carole King as this year's recipient of the Library of Congress' Gershwin Prize for popular song.
"USA Today" says Yearwood helped launch the concert in King's honor, joining Gloria Estefan and Emile Sande in a performance of "Will You Love Me Tomorrow." The ladies sang the song in the manner of one of the girl groups the song was originally written for, with synchronized dance moves and hand gestures.
The show also featured performances from James Taylor, Billy Joel, Jesse McCartney, as well as King herself. President Obama was also on hand to make the award presentation.
"Carole King: The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize In Performance at the White House" is scheduled to air on PBS tonight at 8:00 p.m. Eastern.
