President Barack Obama held his farewell party at the White House on Friday night (Jan. 7) and it was the place to be for many stars, including Solange Knowles.
While her sister Beyoncé was seemingly absent, the Seat at the Table songstress had the honor of performing at the star-studded party. “The sound check of life,” she wrote. “Was truly the ultimate, ultimate honor. Can’t even put into words. Really. We will miss your excellence, your grace, and the phenomenal legacy you have let us all share.”
But Solange wasn’t the only star at the event. Usher, Chance the Rapper, John Legend, Wale, and Kelly Rowland were also on hand for the celebration. So were La La Anthony, Jordin Sparks, DJ Cassidy, Jay Pharoah, Jerry Seinfeld, Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, and many more who helped bid farewell to Obama’s eight years in office.
President Obama is getting ready to transition out of his position. His final day as Commander-in-Chief will be Jan. 20, when he will hand the presidency over to President-elect, Donald Trump. Before that, Obama will deliver his farewell address in Chicago on Jan. 10.
