Adele is set to perform at Michelle Obama's 50th birthday next January in the White House.

Having picked up gongs at both the Oscars and the Grammys, it’s safe to say Adele considers her recent trip Stateside a successful one.

While these may be among the top honors a musician can receive, the Skyfall singer has just received the ultimate stamp of approval from America - she’s been asked to sing at Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday bash at the White House next year.

The 24-year-old singer will perform alongside Beyoncé at the event on the 17th of January, according to The Mail on Sunday.

A source said: "America's First Lady will be holding a huge celebrity-packed party for her birthday at the White House next year and, as she adores Adele and Beyoncé, she has asked them both to sing."

"Adele has graciously accepted and waived her usual fee for the high-profile private performance. She will sing a selection of her most-loved hits for the First Lady and her friends.

“The Obamas will pay Adele's expenses as it's a private party, not a State one."

According to reports, Mrs Obama has long been a fan of Adele and is eager to share the singer’s talents with her nearest and dearest at her party.
