Obama Family Attends Beyonce Concert in D.C.
Beyonce had some very special guests in attendance at her concert in Washington D.C. on Wednesday: First Lady Michelle Obama and her daughters Malia and Sasha. While the President was busy talking about healthcare for an ABC interview, his wife and tween girls were at the Verizon Center with some friends from Chicago and even a few White House staffers.
It’s by now publicly known that the Obama family are fans of Beyonce. The superstar singer performed for Barack and Michelle during their first dance on inauguration night, as well as other inauguration events in January. During the concert on Wednesday, Beyonce dedicated ‘Single Ladies’ to the young Obama girls, telling the crowd, “This is for Sasha and Malia – and all my single ladies!” Afterward, the First Lady thanked Beyonce personally for being such a positive role model.
“She told me she was very happy that her girls have someone like me to look up to,” Beyonce told Vogue Magazine. “I’m like, ‘Oh, my God.’ You have to feel fortunate to be one of the people whom parents don’t mind their children looking up to.”
The President wasn’t entirely absent from the concert. Apparently Beyonce has been touting a video montage at her shows that includes footage of Obama aping the famous “hand dance” from the ‘Single Ladies’ video. Thankfully, he opted not to wear the unitard.
