Lenny Kravitz, Sheryl Crow, Melissa Etheridge, and ’N Sync were among the artists to grace the White House’s South Lawn at a televised concert to benefit VH1’s “Save The Music” Foundation. Dubbed “The Concert Of The Century,” the show saw a number of big name artists, from blues legend B.B. King to newcomers (relatively speaking) ’N Sync, performing songs from their own repertoires as well as collaborating with other artists. Actors including Ben Affleck, Billy Bob Thornton and Meryl Streep presented.
