President Obama and First Lady Michelle will hold their final White House bash this Friday, a snazzy send-off that will feature a guest list of A-listers.

Attendees reportedly include Oprah Winfrey, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Usher, Bradley Cooper, Steve Wonder and Samuel L. Jackson, according to The Washington Post.

Last month, Obama indicated he would be hosting one final fete, telling People magazine that he was “going to have a big party before we leave office.”

Just five days after the bash — and 10 days before President-elect Donald Trump is sworn into office — on Jan. 10, Obama will deliver his farewell address in Chicago.

In a statement Monday, Obama said he had only just begun to prepare his remarks but that he was "thinking about them as a chance to say thank you for this amazing journey, to celebrate the ways you've changed this country for the better these past eight years, and to offer some thoughts on where we all go from here."Send a Letter to the Editor
