Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel had quite the eventful Tuesday.
The singer and his actress wife paid a visit to the White House and got to hang out with Barack and Michelle Obama, but it wasn't just to catch up on J.T.'s chart-topping album or talk politics.
Timberlake was part of an interactive student workshop called "Soulsville, USA: The History of Memphis Soul," which was hosted by the first lady in the State Dining Room.
Middle and high school students from around the country got to take part. It was a moment Biel will cherish forever.

Molly Ringwald covers ‘The Breakfast Club' theme song.
Here's something we didn't even know that we wanted until we got it: Molly Ringwald, of The Breakfast Club fame, has covered the film's theme song, Don't You (Forget About Me) (originally by Simple Minds).
On her just-released jazz album, "Except Sometimes," Molly herself puts a new spin on the infamously catchy song.
"When I recorded the album ... it was really soon after John Hughes passed away. And he was in my mind a lot. And, I don't know, I felt like I wanted to sing a tribute to him. And also, I wanted to incorporate who I was into who I am."
