Adele is set to perform at Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday party next year, alongside Beyonce Knowles.
It is thought that plans are already under way for the soiree and a source has told the Daily Mail that Mrs. Obama has requested the musical talents of her friend Beyonce and the British singer.
The insider remarked, “America’s first lady will be holding a huge celebrity-packed party for her birthday at the White House next year and, as she adores Adele and Beyonce, she has asked them both to sing.”
“Adele has graciously accepted and waived her usual fee for the high-profile private performance,” added the source. “She will sing a selection of her m0st-loved hits for the first lady and her friends.”
Beyonce and Michelle Obama have developed a close relationship since the latter’s husband was voted into power.
The singer even publically released a birthday card for the first lady on her 49th birthday which read, “Michelle, thank you so much for every single thing that [you] do for us … I am proud to have my daughter grow up in a world where she has people like you to look up to.”
Knowles also performed at President Obama’s inauguration earlier this year, and she and her husband, Jay-Z, both helped the President during his re-election bid.
Adele was named as the Entertainer Of The Year during 2012 by the associated members of the British press, beating the likes of Taylor Swift and Psy to the award. This was despite the fact that she only released one song over the past 12 months, the single to the new James Bond film, Skyfall.
Adele isn’t expected to release a new album for several years though, after her record label, XL Recordings, told The New York Times, “The next Adele album may not come for some years, and it’s impossible to predict likely sales. We therefore regard this year’s figures as exceptional.”
