Berry Alumni at the White House

Two Berry alumni, the Rev. Luis Leon (67A), far left, and Carlos Whittaker (96c), standing third from left, join President Barack Obama for a photo during the White House Easter Prayer Breakfast.

President Barack Obama was front and center April 14 as Carlos Whittaker (96c), a Nashville-based singer/songwriter and author, led worship at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast. Among the Christian leaders in attendance was the Rev. Luis Leon (67A), rector of St. John’s Episcopal Church. Leon has had a role in the last four presidential inaugurations, most recently delivering the invocation preceding the 2013 inaugural address.

Here’s a brief video clip of Whittaker’s performance.
