Beyonce, Jay Z and Stevie Wonder celebrate with President Obama
A host of musical stars, including Beyonce, Jay Z and Stevie Wonder, all gathered at the White House to celebrate President Barack Obama's birthday on Friday (05Aug16).
First Lady Michelle Obama made sure her husband spent his 55th birthday - his last as a President - in style, hosting an epic party that also saw John Legend and Kendrick Lamar on the guest list.
Usher, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Hudson, and the Democratic Party's 2016 presidential nominee Hillary Clinton were also in attendance, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Beyonce and husband Jay Z jetted in from her Formation World Tour especially for the party, after the singer completed the European leg of her trek in Barcelona, Spain on Wednesday (03Aug16).
Despite there being a reported social media ban on the event, several celebrities failed to contain their excitement at being invited to a presidential birthday bash. "@thecookiej and I getting ready to go to President Obama's birthday party!" basketball icon Magic Johnson captioned a photo before heading out for the celebration.
Director George Lucas, Ellen DeGeneres, along with wife Portia de Rossi, and Good Morning America news anchor Robin Roberts were snapped by fans on their way into the bash in Washington D.C.
"Tonight was a night I will never forget. #BarackObama #happybirthday,” wrote Nick Jonas on Twitter after the party. The former Disney star took a break from his tour with Demi Lovato to attend the star-studded get together.
Page Six reported on Thursday (04Aug16) that Kendrick Lamar and Usher provided the entertainment for the party.
The First Family is no stranger to celebrations filled with famous faces - Beyonce performed for the First Lady's 50th birthday party in 2014, when Michelle was also serenaded by John Legend in front of guests such as Wonder and Paul McCartney.
