Prince’s performance at the White House over the weekend for President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama attracted a star-studded audience.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and singer Ciara, his date, were among the several hundred guests packed in for the show, according to Page Six.

Other guests at the two-hour concert Saturday included Jon Bon Jovi and James Taylor, as well as television and movie stars Tyler Perry and Connie Britton.

Stevie Wonder was invited on stage by Prince for a duet of “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours,” attendees told Page Six, which reported by Sasha and Malia Obama were also at the show.

The Obamas were reportedly joined by other administration figures for the private show, including former Attorney General Eric Holder, Education Secretary Arne Duncan and National Security Advisor Susan Rice.

The White House traditionally limits information about such private parties. A White House pool report on Saturday afternoon mentioned that “a small stage” was set up on the South Lawn.

Prince played two shows in Washington, D.C., on Sunday at the Warner Theatre.
