The music of Crosby and the News has a long and storied history.
The song first appeared in a 1939 Broadway musical that starred Edna St. Vincent Millay and had a song by the same name in 1955.
Since then, many of the songs have been performed live by groups including Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, as well as a handful of solo acts.
Crosby and The News will be playing at the White House on Oct., 15.
The soundtrack will also include an extended version of “A Little Less Conversation,” a song originally written by John Lennon.
The new edition of the movie also includes an alternate ending, “It’s a Wonderful Life,” which takes place before the presidential election of 1956 and sees President Richard Nixon’s presidency end.
Crosby and the Friends, a collaboration between composer John Lennon and the late songwriter and producer Paul McCartney, was released in 2009.
The first three albums were recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London and then at Abbey Studios in the U.K. After their fourth album, The Beatles, came out in 1967, McCartney and Lennon went on to collaborate on songs like “Hey Jude,” “Imagine,” “Yellow Submarine,” “The End of the Tour,” and “Strawberry Fields Forever.”
The White House has long been home to one of the world’s most beloved music venues, The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
On Nov. 9, a special concert will be held at the Museum.
Crockett and the others will be joined by fellow musicians and entertainers from around the world, including former presidents Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and Jimmy Fallon, among others.
The concert will include performances from rockers Billy Joel and Tom Petty, and comedians like Chris Rock, John Oliver, and Amy Schumer.
