"Make sure you guys tune in on PBS Tuesday! I'll be performing at the White House! Such an honor! Can't wait," the singer wrote on his Twitter.

According to a PBS press release, the "Memphis Soul: In Performance at the White House" show will air on Tuesday April 16 at 8 p.m. EST on the network.

The show will honor soul singers from the mid to late-1960s that came from Memphis, Tennessee including artists such as Al Green, Mavis Staples, Ben Harper, Alabama Shakes, Mavis Staples and many more.

"The evening pays homage to Memphis, a segregated city in the 1960s where many whites and blacks nonetheless came together to make soulful music, a mix of gospel and potent rhythmic grooves - known today as "Memphis Soul'" PBS said in the statement.

Tuesday's show will be the tenth "In Performance at the White House" concert during President Barack Obama's administration, an ocassion to honor music genius.
