President Barack Obama and the first lady hosted a shindig at the White House Saturday, where they and 500 of their closest friends were entertained by none other than Prince and and Stevie Wonder.

It was all in celebration of African-American Music Appreciation Month, according to the New York Post.

Don’t bother checking the White House calendar — it makes no mention of it. Apparently, the first family wanted to keep this one quiet.

But you can’t invite 500 friends — close or not — over for a night of food, wine and song and not expect someone to spill the beans.

Enter Mr. Bean-spiller himself, blabber-mouth and name-dropper extraordinaire, Al Sharpton, sometimes referred to as the “Reverend Al.”

As he was leaving the executive mansion, he tweeted:

This in turn earned a reply:

And it didn’t take long. CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller tweeted:

A few minutes later, Knoller sent a follow-up.

Yeah, no kidding, Mark. We already checked. Knoller then sent out a third tweet:

The Post, however did a bit more digging, and reported:


Spotted at the exclusive two-hour concert — during which Prince played hits including “Kiss” and “Purple Rain” — were Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his date, singer Ciara, artists Jon Bon Jovi and James Taylor, TV & film stars Tyler Perry, Connie Britton, Angela Bassett, Gayle King, Tracee Ellis Ross, fashion designer Naeem Khan and J.Crew’s Jenna Lyons.

Also there, Carlyle’s David Rubenstein, 32 Advisors’ Robert Wolf and American Express’ Ken Chenault, plus DC power players former Attorney General Eric Holder, Education Secretary Arne Duncan and National Security Adviser Susan Rice.

Also in attendance were first daughters Sasha and Malia, the Post reported.

The number of attendees was confirmed by Breitbart News White House correspondent Charlie Spiering:

Just to put the size of the event in perspective, Spierling did some checking and tweeted:

Margaret Talev, incidentally, is the White House correspondent for Bloomberg News. But one has to wonder — twice the size of a state dinner? Who’s going to pay for all that? Spierling tweeted:

So White House press secretary Josh Earnest said so, huh? Isn’t he the same guy who called a major presidential defeat at the hands of his party last week a “procedural snafu?”
