"Nobody Knows" "I'm Not Dead"

"Dear Mr. President" is a song by P!nk featuring the Indigo Girls, and was recorded for P!nk's fourth album, I'm Not Dead. The song is an open letter to then President of the United States, George W. Bush, and P!nk felt that it was one of the most important songs she had written. She stated that it would never be released as a single in the United States, because it was too important to be perceived as a publicity stunt. It has since been released in Europe, Australia and Canada. The video of her performance live from Wembley Arena was added to the VH1 line-up of videos.

Despite the song not being released as a single in the United States, it still received a good amount of success and has been covered numerous times by various musicians.

Live performancesEdit

P!nk performed the song during the I'm Not Dead Tour. It was also included on the concert's DVD, Live From Wembley Arena London, England. P!nk performed the song before a cover of 4 Non Blondes' "What's Up?". It was also performed on select dates of the Funhouse Tour, although it was not included on the tour's DVD. P!nk also performed it at the iTunes Festival in 2012, and it was featured on an EP that included six of her performances from the concert.
