Chile, I am soooo envious of Sasha and Malia right now.
According to the NY Post, Prince held a private, VIP performance with Stevie Wonder at the White House last Saturday night. The two legends were celebrating African-American music month and played all my favorites: “Kiss,” “Purple Rain” and “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours.”
The show was a relatively intimate gathering with 500 guests. Among the crowd were Russell Wilson and Ciara, Tracee Ellis Ross, Gayle King, Angela Bassett and Tyler Perry.
A few politicians were in the house, too of course, including: former Attorney General Eric Holder, Education Secretary Arne Duncan and National Security Advisor Susan Rice.
When Prince and Stevie were ready to call it a night, DJ Cassidy took over the set and had guests dancing until the early morning. The party is rumored to have been held in the East Room where Aretha Franklin, Patti LaBelle and John Legend have previously performed.
Gaaaaah my skin just turned green. I think we can all agree that Prince and Stevie Wonder are one of the best musical duos in history. I may never get to experience them together myself but a girl can dream, right?
