The White Stripes man performed the song from the legendary group's 1968 LP 'The Beatles' [known as 'The White Album'], at a special show at the White House last month (June 8), reports Twenty Four Bit.

Paul McCartney, US president Barack Obama, Stevie Wonder, Elvis Costello and Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl were also in attendance at the event.

During the ceremony, McCartney accepted the third Gershwin Prize For Popular Song from President Obama. The former Beatle also played at the event, where he serenaded Michelle Obama by playing The Beatles' song 'Michelle', directing the lyrics at her.

The full concert is set to be aired on US television on July 28 – it will feature Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl playing Wings' 'Band On The Run', as well as performances by The Jonas Brothers, Faith Hill, Elvis Costello and Emmylou Harris.
