HOH would love to get a look at what’s on the iPods of Members of Congress, but we’ll settle for the next best thing. HOH caught up with lawmakers last week at the Grammys on the Hill, an annual event that honors politicians, educators and musicians for their work to protect artists’ rights.
We asked Members who were some of their favorite musicians. Here’s what they said:
House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.): Martina McBride
Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.): Jon Bon Jovi (who’s in contention with Bruce Springsteen for the title of the Bard of New Jersey)
Vice President Joe Biden waits to conduct a mock swearing-in ceremony with Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, in the Capitol's Old Senate Chamber, December 2, 2014. Schatz was sworn in to serve the remainder of his term since he was appointed to the seat after Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, passed away.
