President Barack Obama delivered his farewell address last night in Chicago following two terms as Chief Executive. The event included a performance by longtime current POTUS supporter Eddie Vedder.
The Pearl Jam frontman performed with the assistance of the children’s group Voice Of Chicago which is an affiliate of the Chicago Children’s Choir. He and the ensemble offered renditions of Vedder’s “Rise” from the Into The Wild soundtrack, “People Have The Power” by Patti Smith, “Something Inside So Strong” by Labi Siffre and “Rockin’ In The Free World” by Neil Young.
The evening also saw the “Star Spangled Banner” sung by BJ The Chicago Kid. Below is audience-shot footage of Vedder’s performance from last night.
