Moore appreciates the President's invitation, as the White House salutes "Memphis Soul" and the artists who created this American cultural legacy. The concert will honor memorable soul sounds from the mid- to late-1960s that emerged from Memphis, Tennessee, along with legendary labels such as Stax-Volt Records and H Records, which featured artists such as Al Green , Otis Redding, Mavis Staples , Carla Thomas and more. The evening pays homage to a segregated city in the 1960s, where many whites and blacks nonetheless came together to make soulful music that mixed gospel with potent rhythmic grooves, which came to be known as Memphis Soul music.

This performance will mark Moore's second invitation to appear at the White House for a sitting president. With this concert, Moore will have performed for all five of the living Presidents of the United States Jimmy Carter , George H. W. Bush , Bill Clinton , George W. Bush and Barack Obama – an honor he is extremely proud of.

ABOUT SAM MOORE: An American Southern soul and R&B legend, Moore found early success as part of the historic Memphis Soul duo Sam & Dave. With their rapid-fire style, pioneered by Moore, and hit songs such as "Soul Man," the duo inspired The Blues Brothers personas and movie. Moore has continued to tour as a solo artist, earning critical acclaim for his work, including a GRAMMY ® Award, Pioneer Award from the Rhythm & Blues Foundation and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, among many other honors.
