It’s been a big year for the North Fork’s own Brady Rymer, first walking the red carpet at the Grammy’s and now playing his upbeat music outside America’s most famous residence.
The Grammy Award nominee and Southold resident performed at the nation’s capitol Monday for the White House’s annual Easter celebration.
Rymer rocked the South Lawn with his hit song “Jump Up (It’s a Good Day)” during the White House’s biggest annual event open to the public.
The children’s tune was recorded specifically for the “Songs for a Healthier America” album, which was co-produced by First Lady Michelle Obama’s Partnership for a Healthier America. The year’s theme is #GimmeFive, challenging Americans to make five healthy lifestyle choices in celebration of the fifth anniversary of the First Lady’s “Let’s Move” campaign.
More than 35,000 people were expected to attend the annual event which features storytelling, sports and fitness zones, cooking demonstrations and the famed egg roll. The event is open to the public though tickets must be secured through a lottery system.
Rymer and his band, The Little Band That Could, were nominated for a Best Children’s Album Grammy this year for their seventh studio “Just Say Hi.” The band was also nominated for the award in 2009.
This isn’t the first time Rymer visited the first family’s house. The Grammy-nominated family music artist performed at the White House during last year’s event.
Want to see him perform closer to home? Rymer will play at the Westhampton Beach Learning Center on May 1.
