Beyonce Performs at Michelle Obama’s 50th Birthday Party
Beyonce was among the A-List artists who performed for First Lady Michelle Obama at her 50th birthday party at the White House on Saturday (Jan. 18). The star-studded guest list also included Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Samuel L. Jackson, Herbie Hancock and Magic Johnson.
Queen Bey looked stunning in her gorgeous gold minidress and nude patent leather stiletto heels.
Beyonce posted several pictures from her visit at the White House on her Tumblr page.
The R&B mom had time to hang out with Sunny, one of the First Family’s dogs. Bey’s daughter, Blue Ivy, was also able to visit the White House prior to party where she met Sunny and was amazed by the Obama’s huge Christmas tree.
At the party, Beyonce performed a special set for FLOTUS and her guests. According to CNN, the singer performed renditions of 'Singles Ladies' and 'Irreplaceable.'
Partygoers nibbled on snacks and sipped on libations but were not allowed to bring cameras or cell phones to the event.
According to E! Online, the entire state dining room was transformed into a dance floor and President Barack Obama was reportedly teaching guests how to do the "Dougie."
For most of the attendees, the highlight of the night was when President Obama spoke lovingly about his wife of 21 years. "It was just beautiful, a husband speaking about his wife," said Herbie Hancock.
