The event, “A Night When Hope and History Rhyme,” will “celebrate the healing and unifying power of music,” per the White House.
Both President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden will deliver remarks at the event that will “commend the life and work of Sir Elton John, and honor the everyday history-makers in the audience, including teachers, nurses, frontline workers, mental health advocates, students, LGBTQ+ advocates and more.”
The concert is being held in collaboration with A+E Networks and the History Channel.
Joe Biden recently found himself in hot water after claiming the COVID-19 pandemic is “over” during an interview on 60 Minutes. The statement prompted criticism from those who disagree and also from those left confused as the White House’s pandemic policies go unchanged.
