President Obama & Celebs React to B.B. King's Death

B.B. King‘s death has saddened people around the world and now celebrities are paying their condolences via social media.

President Barack Obama has even released a statement to honor the legendary blues musician, who died peacefully in his sleep on Thursday (May 14) at age 89.

“The blues has lost its king, and America has lost a legend. B.B. King was born a sharecropper’s son in Mississippi, came of age in Memphis, Tennessee, and became the ambassador who brought his all-American music to his country and the world. No one worked harder than B.B. No one inspired more up-and-coming artists. No one did more to spread the gospel of the blues,” Obama said.

“Three years ago, Michelle and I hosted a blues concert at the White House. I hadn’t expected that I’d be talked into singing a few lines of ‘Sweet Home Chicago’ with B.B. by the end of the night, but that was the kind of effect his music had, and still does,” Barack added. “He gets stuck in your head, he gets you moving, he gets you doing the things you probably shouldn’t do—but will be always be glad you did. B.B. may be gone, but that thrill will be with us forever. And there’s going to be one killer blues session in heaven tonight.”
