Barack and Michelle Obama Remember Frankie Knuckles

After the sad news last month of the passing of Chicago house legend Frankie Knuckles, fellow Chicagoans Barack and Michelle Obama have sent a condolence note to friends and family of Knuckles, which DJ David Morales has posted on his Facebook. In a testament to the incredible influence Knuckles has had on not just music, but contemporary culture, the Obamas write: "Frankie's work helped open minds and bring people together..." Read the letter below, and listen to a special FADER Mix that Knuckles made specifically for us last year.
