Prince held a private, VIP performance with Stevie Wonder at the White House last Saturday night, according to Page Six. 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 andCiara, 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, PattiLaBelle and John Legend have previously performed.
