Chance the Rapper scored another invitation to the White House. The South Side rapper and singers Kelly Clarkson and Yolanda Adams are scheduled to perform at the White House's National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony Dec. 1.
Tickets for the annual event are free and awarded via an online lottery set for Oct. 7-10. Winners are scheduled to be notified Oct. 27. The ceremony is slated to be broadcast Dec. 2 on the Hallmark Channel.
President Calvin Coolidge started the tradition in 1923. Reese Witherspoon hosted last year's ceremony, which featured performances by Andra Day, Tori Kelly, and North Shore band Fall Out Boy.
Chance the Rapper, whose father Ken Bennett served as a deputy assistant to Obama, was a guest at the president's star-studded birthday party last month.
