PBS In Performance at the White House – September 16

It’s that time of year again, as you’ve probably noticed from today’s Diez y Seis (or is it dieciseis?) event posts. And here’s another one, this one is PBS’ In Performance at the White House in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month. The one-hour show will be live streamed at WhiteHouse.gov on Monday, 16th of September at 7pm, but the show itself will be on PBS on October 8th.

This year’s line-up has some familiar names.

The evening will feature artists Natalie Cole, Lila Downs, Gloria Estefan, Raul Malo, Ricky Martin, Prince Royce, Arturo Sandoval, Romeo Santos, Alejandro Sanz and Marco Antonio Solís. (Program subject to change.) The one-hour television special is part of the long-running In Performance at the White House series, now in its 36th year.

Note to PBS:  Since the program is subject to change, I would suggest at least ONE Tex-Mex band, in this case, Los Texmaniacs. And maybe the little Mariachi dude from the Spurs games. Just sayin’.

But I am glad to see Raul Malo on the list.

Some more cool stuff below the fold.
