Michelle Obama and her daughter Sasha, turned up for Beyonce and Jay-Z’s concert in Paris and the former First Lady was pictured dancing up a storm.
Before Beyonce and Jay-Z took to the stage, Michelle and Sasha were spotted in the stands at the Stade de France by several excited fans. However after the concert kicked off, Sasha was no where to be found and Michelle Obama dressed in white shorts, a loose blouse and beige platform wedge sandals, was snapped standing beside Tina Knowles in a VIP area at the front the stage.
At one point as Jay-Z was rapping, Michelle could be seen dancing and waving her hands around with the rest of the crowd. The show was the same one in which Beyonce treated her French fans to a screening of the World Cup ahead of the concert with her husband.
The Formation hitmaker shared a clip on Instagram of the moment the fans went crazy when France scored, as well as a selection of snaps from the stage of the crowds enjoying the game.
It is not the first Beyoncé and Jay Z concert for the former First Family. Back in 2014, both Sasha and Malia, along with their mom, were spotted by concertgoers attending a show in Chicago.
The Obamas and Carters have a history dating back to Barack’s first run for president when JAY-Z hit the campaign trail for him. The Carters made several visits to the White House, including to attend the Obamas’ farewell party. Last year, Barack introduced JAY-Z for his entrance into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
The five-year friendship between the Obamas and the Knowles-Carters is unique. Few other musicians have had such enviable connections with the White House. Jay-Z has told reporters he texts the former President regularly—and Obama was the first mainstream political candidate to declare himself a fan of hip-hop.
While Jay-Z’s endorsement of Obama was a valuable one in 2008, energizing young voters and establishing the candidate’s cool factor, it also came with controversy, giving the media a leader who not only acknowledged but celebrated his close family friendship with a hip-hop mogul and entrepreneur whose history includes selling crack as a teenager and stabbing a record executive at an industry party in 1999.
