Washington — Mick Jagger, BB King and other musical greats are gathering  at the White House to celebrate the blues.

Jagger tweeted that President Barack Obama popped in during a rehearsal for Tuesday's concert, seemingly "really relaxed and happy!"

Grammy-winner Keb Mo joked during a break on Tuesday's rehearsal that Obama would be performing three numbers and there was a record in the works.

Mo joked that Obama's record would be, "After the second term, now I can finally get my groove on."

The blues concert will be part of the In Performance at the White House series that airs in the United States on the Public Broadcasting System.
