WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obamas are getting into the holiday spirit with a little help from Hugh Jackman, Sheryl Crow and Janelle Monae.

President Barack Obama and his family are attending the 32nd annual "Christmas in Washington" concert Sunday night at the National Building Museum. The event is a benefit for the Children's National Health System.

Before the concert began, the president, his wife, Michelle, and daughters, Sasha and Malia, helped collect presents for patients at Children's National. The president planned to speak to guests at the concert.

Other performers include the Backstreet Boys, actress Anna Kendrick, retired NBA star Charles Barkley and Pat Monahan, the lead singer of Train.

The program will air Friday on TNT.
