AceShowbiz - %cKelly Clarkson% and %cChance The Rapper% will help President %cBarack Obama% usher in the holiday season with a performance at White House's National Christmas Tree Lighting concert. The duo will be joined by gospel star %cYolanda Adams%.
The annual event will take place on December 1. Free tickets for the general public will be available through an online lottery on the National Tree website on October 7 beginning at 10 A.M. ET. The Hallmark Channel will air the ceremony on December 2.
While Kelly and Yolanda have performed at events during Barack Obama's tenure, this will be Chance's debut performance at the White House.
Back in April, Chance, whose father worked for Obama when he was an Illinois state senator, visited the White House to discuss "My Brother's Keeper" initiative. In an interview with GQ, the "No Problem" hitmaker said Obama even offered him some career advice after the meeting.
"[Obama] brings me up to his office, and we had a really good conversation about what I was working on," Chance said, "He told me I needed to start selling my music. He's a good man. Even if he wasn't president, if his ass worked at, like, Red Lobster, he'd be just a good man working at Red Lobster."
