Obamas planning White House farewell party

US President Barack Obama is reportedly going out with a bang as he and First Lady Michelle Obama are said to be planning a “grown up” party at the White House this Friday night, with the likes of Beyoncé and Jay Z, Stevie Wonder, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney and Usher among the stars rumored to be on the guest list.
Hip-Hop artiste Chance the Rapper confirmed his attendance on Twitter saying,  “Bout to fly 21 hours to DC to bid farewell to the greatest president in US history. God bless you Potus.”
Movie directors George Lucas and JJ Abrams, talk show great Oprah Winfrey and actors Samuel L. Jackson and Bradley Cooper are also expected to take their seats for the A-list soiree.
The inauguration ceremony for his successor, Republican president-elect Donald Trump, is set for January 20.  
There is no official word from the White House yet on the Obamas’ final bash.
