The memorial services will give his other daughters, Patty King and Karen Williams, the chance to say goodbye, since they sadly didn't have that opportunity before he passed.

Information about the singer's funeral and burial service haven't been released yet, but the executive director of the B.B. King Museum, Dion Brown, says they will be held in Indianola, Mississippi the week after his memorial.

Our hearts go out to the friends and family of the legendary musician.

President Obama Sings The Blues!

Filed under: Music MinutePolitikBarack Obama

The POTUS has busted out his singing chops again!

President Obama first displayed his skillz while singing a few Al Green lyrics a few weeks back. Now, he's swtiched to the blues! (Though we don't know why - he's got the upcoming election in the bag!)

With legends like B.B. King, Mick Jagger and Booker T. Jones beckoning him to sing again, Obama relents and belts out a few lines of Sweet Home Chicago in the new PBS's special, In Performance at the White House: Red, White and Blues.

The special will honor the art of blues music and its formation from the South to its surge in Chicago. And now it's reached Washington!!

Check out the POTUS's singing skillz in the video above!

Do U prefer the Prez's version of Sweet Home Chicago or Let's Stay Together?
