On Wednesday he will sing:
St. John's known to many Washington residents as the yellow church at Lafayette Square, is often called the “Church of the Presidents” since beginning with James Madison who was president from 1809 to 1817, every president has been a member of St. John's or has attended services at the church. A plaque at the rear of the church designates the pew where President Abraham Lincoln often sat when he stopped by St. John's during the Civil War.
This year the church celebrates its bicentennial, and its history and stained-glass windows are described in books and booklets available at St. John's.
