Inside Prince and Stevie Wonder's Top-Secret White House Show

Little has been reported about the elite event for Barack and Michelle Obama and high-profile guests — until now

By June 19, 2015


The event taking place in the East Room was a performance by Prince for about 500 A-list friends, supporters, and entertainment-world pals of President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama. Pop and rock acts playing the White House isn't news; what set the Prince event apart was its secrecy. Called a "private party for friends and family" by one White House official, the bash featured a lengthy set by Prince and a cameo by Stevie Wonder, and it was kept so under the wraps — before and after — that it quickly became one of the year's most talked-about pop shows.

The reason for the event remains unclear – the best guess is that it was a thank you to supporters. Prince, a longtime Obama favorite, was already scheduled to play a show in D.C. the following night, and according to one source close to one of the guests, "It wasn't connected to a birthday or anniversary. Prince was playing in D.C. and Obama is a big Prince fan and thought about doing something around it."

The centerpiece of the evening was a two-hour performance by Prince and his band that included, among other songs, "Raspberry Beret."

When Prince invited up Wonder, the two shared keyboards on a version of Wonder's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" and one other jam. "Prince's set was unbelievable," says Taylor. "The energy was incredible. It was loud and everyone was on their feet and it was electric. It was definitely a funky kind of groove." After that, DJ Cassidy — the celeb-favorite DJ who's spun at Jay Z and Beyoncé's wedding and Obama-connected events — cranked classic Michael Jackson, Beyoncé and Earth, Wind & Fire songs into the night.

Kick the old-school joints. For the true funk soldiers.

June is Black Music Month, so that might have something to do with it.

Probably.

Prince always seems so affectionate where Stevie is concerned (as visa versa). Remember P tearing up when Stevie talked about him in 1996 (while embracing Mayte.)

I am such a weirdo. Just now, I started to think about what Stevie would think if he ever got to SEE Prince's cuteness..LOL.
