Gurrumul and Mauboy to perform for Obama

Jess Mauboy Gurru
The White House has asked Gurrumul Yunupingu and Jessica Mauboy to perform on Thursday before US president Barack Obama. The show will most likely be at RAAF Base Darwin when the President addresses troops.

Jessica Mauboy had complications attending Darwin. After being in the Caribbean as part of the Gold Coast’s successful bid for the Commonwealth Games, she returned to LA via Miami to catch a flight back to Australia. But an hour out of Miami, the floor beneath her first class seat started to pop, and the pilot had to return to Miami to screams of sirens from emergency services.
