Chance the Rapper and Frank Ocean: White House State Dinner includes major stars
President Barack Obama hosted his final State Dinner on Tuesday night, and to celebrate he invited a few of his favorite artists: Frank Ocean and Chance the Rapper.
In a total aww-inducing moment, both stars brought their parents. Chance, who has a long, friendly relationship with the Obama family, showed up with his father, Ken Bennett, who once worked with Obama back when the president was an Illinois Senator. “Thanks Dad for raising me right. Look at us all fancy for the White House. I ain’t even wearing a hat tonight #BlackBoyJoy,” he tweeted with a photo.
Ocean, on the other hand, brought his mother Katonya Breaux. “I am so blessed to have a son that includes me in his once in a lifetime events!!! I just hugged our First Lady!!!! #statedinner,” she tweeted with a photo of her place card.
Other notable guests in attendance included Jerry Seinfeld, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, and James Taylor.
