Congratulations, Sir Paul!

Written by PETA | June 3, 2010

Last night, longtime PETA booster Sir Paul McCartney rocked the White House. He sang “Michelle” to the first lady, and played to a packed crowd of celebs (including fellow PETA pal Emmylou Harris). To cap it all off, President Obama presented him with the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.

Of course, Sir Paul rocks on and off the stage. All about living la vida vegetarían, he’s been a driving force behind the international “Meat-Free Monday” campaign. He’s also urged Giorgio Armani to go fur-free, gone after KFC, and drummed up support for a worldwide boycott of McDonald’s.

So congratulations, Sir Paul, and thanks for everything that you do for animals!

    You gotta love Paul. While the man is busy juggling myriad pursuits he still makes time for the animals. His compassion and sensitivity for all things living is probably one of the main reasons he is such an astounding musician and songwriter.
