President Obama to throw epic White House farewell bash
The New York Times

As the President-Elect slowly adds to his list of obscure entertainers for his inauguration, President Obama has been quietly masterminding a real star-studded bash. The Washington Post reports that the Obamas will host their final White House party this Friday (Jan. 6) and have called up quite a few big names to help them go out with a bang.

The event's rumored guest list includes Usher, Stevie Wonder, Samuel L. Jackson, George Lucas, J.J. Abrams, Oprah Winfrey, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Vedder and Bradley Cooper, with Beyoncé and Jay Z rumored to perform. Chance the Rapper confirmed his attendance via Twitter, where he wrote, "Bout to fly 21 hours to DC to bid farewell to the greatest president in US history. God bless you [POTUS]."
