Wale, Solange, Usher, and many more were in attendance.
On Friday night, President Obama and his family hosted what would be the final party at the White House, and it drew some of the biggest names in entertainment. Among those seen attending the no-cameras event were Usher, Wale, Solange, Robert Deniro, Dave Chappelle, Stevie Wonder, Meryl Streep, and Tom Hanks. From the photos and videos taken outside the event, all the invitees seemed honored and excited to attend, but perhaps no one had a better time than Chance The Rapper, who couldn't help but rave about the party in a video recorded in the early hours of the morning following the get-together.
"This was the last time. The party was amazing, it just ended. It's like 4AM," he said. "My dad put a Black man in the White House, y'all can't tell me nothing. Stay Black no matter what, don't let 'em stop you."
"They wouldn’t let us bring cameras into this shit but just know it was historic," he continued later in the night. "It was Black, it was beautiful, there was dancing, there was laughing, there was loving, there was hugs."
In the clip, Chance also handed out a few awards for "best dressed," "best joke," "best hug," and more, awarding a few of them to himself.
