Willow Smith Performing At White House ‘Easter Egg Roll’
Willow Smith is continuing to land big gigs before the release of her Roc Nation assisted album, the latest being a stint at this year’s White House ‘Easter Egg Roll.’
Smith was announced as a performer for Sunday’s Rockin’ Egg Roll where she’ll join Colbie Caillat, Greyson Chance, pre-teen singing group Mindless Behavior, John Lithgow, Sesame Street, and Little Beats and DJ WillyWow.
Colbie Caillat will sing the National Anthem.
This year the largest annual public event at the White House will feature a “Get Up and Go!” theme focusing on promoting health and wellness and encouraging children to lead healthy and active lives.
This is a central part of the First Lady’s Let’s Move! initiative, which is a national effort to combat childhood obesity.
Along with musical performances, the Easter Egg Roll will feature a Storytime Stage where Kelly Ripa, Mark Consuelos and family; John Lithgow; Elmo, Maria and Gordon of Sesame Street; John Bemelmans Marciano; Kristi Yamaguchi; and Geena Davis will read to children.
30,000 people from all 50 states and the District of Columbia have received tickets to the annual Easter Egg Roll and for a third year in a row, tickets were distributed online.
Members of the public were selected to participate through an online lottery.
