Reach for the Stars: Pres. Obama's 50th Birthday Bash

President Obama celebrated the big 5-0 in Washington on Thursday night with a star-studded entourage of guests, including Stevie Wonder, Chris Rock, Tom Hanks, Whoopi Goldberg, Herbie Hancock and Jay-Z.


Chris Rock shared that he had a wonderful time via Twitter. "Just left the President's birthday party at the White House. Herbie Hancock played, Stevie Wonder sang and yes, they did the electric slide. A great night."

Obama's daughters, Malia, 13, home from summer camp, and younger sister, Sasha, 10, joined the festivities along with First Lady Michelle.

The President's party was closed to the press and paid for by the First Couple.
