Washington: Singer-actor Justin Timberlake serenaded President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama at a concert in the White House.
The 'Mirrors' hitmaker performed at the US President's celebration of soul music from Memphis, Tennessee, the singer's hometown, at the latest 'In Performance at the White House' concert, singing alongside the likes of soul legend Booker T Jones, Queen Latifah and Cyndi Lauper, reported Washington Post.
The 32-year-old star entertained the couple and a private audience in the East Room of the White House in Washington, DC with a cover of Otis Redding's '(Sittin' on) The Dock of the Bay', while Steve Cropper, who wrote the song along with Otis, looked on and appeared to be impressed by the crooner's take on the soulful hit.
The event marked the 10th 'In Performance' concert at the White House since Obama first took office in 2009.
The concerts celebrate America's rich musical history, with the latest gig particularly focusing on soul music from the south.
The president was seen bobbing his head, tapping his feet and mouthing lyrics to the performances.
Obama also exchanged words with Justin and wife Jessica Biel, 31, who accompanied the 'Suit & Tie' singer to the event.
