Katy Perry belts out a song during a special concert commemorating the Special Olympics in State Dining Room of the White House on Thursday evening (July 31) in Washington, D.C.
The 29-year-old entertainer sang for President Barack Obama and the First Lady Michelle Obama that evening, along with a huge crowd of spectators.
“We have just one of my favorite people performing tonight—Katy Perry,” the President said in his introduction of Katy (via E! News). “We are so grateful to her.”
“I love Katy Perry,” he added. “She is just a wonderful person. I’ve just met her mom and now I know why she is such a wonderful person, but I just want everybody to know she is on tour right now and so for her to take time out to do this is really special, and so we really want to say thank you to her for doing this.”
Katy also brought her mom Mary to watch her perform.
FYI: Katy is wearing an Elie Saab gown.
