An 11-year-old who recently made her Broadway debut in a big Andrew Lloyd Webber musical has managed to top that — singing at the White House for Michelle Obama. Bobbi MacKenzie, from Portland, Ore., sang "If Only You Would Listen" from "School of Rock" on Monday, and also got high-fives from Tony Award-winner Kristin Chenoweth. "I am having the best week of my life," Bobbi said.
The visit was part of a summit on acting, directing, singing and costume design that drew 40 students from public arts high schools and after-school arts programs. Music was performed from a handful of Broadway shows.
