Obamas to host governors at White House ball
WASHINGTON — The first family will welcome some out-of-town guests to the White House on Sunday: a gathering of the nation’s governors.
President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama are hosting the National Governors Association for the annual Governor’s Ball. The president will offer up a toast to the gathering.
The evening event also features a performance by Grammy Award-winning singer Harry Connick Jr.
Earlier in the day, Mrs. Obama gives a group of Washington-area music students a preview of the talent set to perform at the gala.
