Leaving the White House at 3am last night after dancing the night away, celebrating 8 incredible years. What an extraordinary night. Here with my dear friend @robinlordtaylor who came with me. Thank you @barackobama and @michelleobama for everything and for including me. Unforgettable and joyous and as inspiring as ever, even in the midst of such an emotional, bittersweet goodbye.
“Straight off the plane to the White House,” Jonas, 24, shared on Instagram along with a photo of himself and former Kingdom costar Jonathan Tucker.
“Getting to take my Dad to the White House…Priceless. Soooo excited! Cheers! *drops mic*,” Sparks, 27, posted on social media with a selfie with her father.
In their last interview with PEOPLE in early December, the Obamas told a young fan that they had been planning a farewell fête, but that it would a “grown-up” affair.
“We are going to have a big party before we leave office, but I’ll be honest with you it’s going to be after your bed time,” the president said.
The bash at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. will likely act as the kickoff of last events for the president, who will head to Chicago to deliver a farewell address on Jan. 10.
Earlier on Friday, Mrs. Obama delivered her final speech as first lady in the East Room, where she also hosted 50 school counselors and a slew of stars at the 2017 School Counselor of the Year event.
