Rumer will be the only UK artist performing at a concert honouring Burt Bacharach and Hal David at The White House tonight (May 9).

Barack Obama will be in attendance at the concert, which will also see appearences by Stevie Wonder, Sheryl Crow, Diana Krall and Hollywood actor Mike Myers.

Bacharach and David will be presented with the 2012 Library of Congress Prize for Popular Song, the first time the honour has gone to a songwriting team, by Obama and his wife, Michelle, during the evening.

The concert, which starts at 7pm ET, will be streamed live on The White House's official website.
