Chance the Rapper confirmed his attendance at Friday night's "grown-up" event via Twitter.
President Barack Obama is going out with a bang.
The outgoing president and first lady Michelle Obama are said to be planning a so-called “grown-up” party at the White House this Friday night, with the likes of Beyonce and Jay Z, Stevie Wonder, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, Usher and Eddie Vedder among the stars rumored to be on the guest list.
Fellow Chicagoan Chance the Rapper confirmed his attendance on Twitter. “Bout to fly 21 hours to DC to bid farewell to the greatest president in US history. God bless you Potus,” tweeted the hip-hop star.
Movie directors George Lucas and J.J. Abrams, talk show great Oprah Winfrey and actors Samuel L. Jackson and Bradley Cooper also are expected to take their seats for the A-list soiree at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., which will serve as one of the POTUS’ final gestures before becoming a private citizen. The inauguration ceremony for his successor, the Republican President-elect Donald Trump, is set for Jan. 20.
There’s no official word from the White House just yet on the Obamas’ final bash.
