On December 14th, Gospel music group Charles Butler & Trinity performed with actress and singer Ledisi at the White House for President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama's Senior Staff Dinner. The group sang "Children Go Where I Send Thee" and "Give Love on Christmas Day" from Ledisi's 2008 It's Christmas CD.
After Ledisi performed her last song the President requested that she perform an additional song - which she did - performing her hit single "Alright". This is Charles Butler and Trinity's second time this year performing at the White House and the third time singing for the President and First Lady.
"It was an honor to be in the presence of The President and First Lady", states Butler."After we sang we were able to meet them and take pictures. First Lady complimented the ladies on their pearls and the President kept telling the singers how great they were."
