WASHINGTON (AP) An arrangement of Michael Jackson's "Heal the World" topped off a concert given by local high school students for two first ladies.
Michelle Obama and Svetlana Medvedeva, the first lady of Russia, visited the Duke Ellington School of the Arts in northwest Washington on Thursday afternoon.
The students offered modern and classic selections by several iconic American artists, including George Gershwin, Duke Ellington and Billy Joel. One group also performed a ballet choreographed to a composition by the Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev.
Obama attended a dance recital with Medvedeva in Moscow last summer.
Obama called the concert an amazing performance.
