Maggie
Rogers
has shared a letter she’s received from Barack and
Michelle Obama, who apologised for missing her shows in Washington
this week.

The ‘Light On’ artist performed one of two scheduled
concerts at D.C. venue The Anthem last night (October 7), and will
take to the stage there once again this evening (October 8).

After Rogers made it onto
Obama’s summer playlist this year
, she’s now been sent a
letter from the former US President and his wife.

In the message, which Rogers posted to her Twitter earlier
today, the Obamas describe themselves as “huge fans” of her
music and say sorry for being unable to attend “what we’re sure
will be a wonderful couple of evenings at The Anthem”.

“Good luck on the next part of your journey – looking
forward to decades of great music from you! And we hope you and
your crew enjoy spending a little time in D.C.,” they wrote.
