Obama First Dance

After all the festivities of the day and after Barack Obama was official sworn in as President of the United States, it was time to make the rounds of the numerous Inaugural Balls planned for the Obamas. Everyone wanted to see what Michelle Obama, the nation’s new First Lady would be wearing. We found out. The First Lady chose a gown created by a 26-year-old designer, Jason Wu. As people began to evaluate her fashion choice, as well as the fashion choice of Dr. Jill Biden, the dancing began.

Barack and Michelle Obama made appearances at 10 official Inaugural Balls throughout the evening. The first one and the one he spent the most time at, was the Neighborhood Ball. The couple were introduced by actor Denzel Washington and were serenaded by pop artist Beyonce. She sang her version of At Last for the First Couple to take their first dance.

Beyonce recorded the Etta James classic when she portrayed James in Cadillac Records last year. Also in attendance at the Neighborhood Ball were Jessica Alba, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ray Romano, Jamie Foxx, Queen Latifah, Kate Walsh, Jay-Z,, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Shakira, Sting, Faith Hill, Mary J. Blige, Stevie Wonder and Maroon 5.

Honestly, with all these posts about the celebrities who are all about Barack Obama, I’m starting to feel like a celebrity writer instead of a political writer!

Enjoy the video of the Beyonce performance and the Obama’s first dance below.
