The Latin music concert was canceled on Monday due to the Navy Yard shooting but prior to the scheduled event, Michelle said her husband would shake his "groove thing".
First lady Michelle Obama said that the president “will shake his groove thing” at a Latin music concert being held at White House on Monday. Gloria Estefan, Ricky Martin and Romeo Santos are among the artists lined up to perform.
“Now, the percussive beats and the buoyant melodies from these songs come just — from just about everywhere,” Obama told the students. “You’ll learn they come from the Caribbean and Mexico, and from Central and South America, and also even from Africa and Europe. And when you put all of that together, you can’t help but move to the music — even the president, you will see tonight, will shake his groove thing every now and then.”
