Politico said rapper Jay-Z, actors Tom Hanks and Hill Harper, actress Whoopi Goldberg and basketball stars Charles Barkley and Grant Hill also attended Thursday night's bash.

"Just left the Presidents birthday party at the White House. Herbie Hancock played, Stevie Wonder sang and yes they did the electric slide. A great night," Rock said on Twitter.
