NEW YORK -- BET Networks joined President Barack Obama and the First Lady for a star-studded musical celebration at the White House. Hosted by Terrence J and Regina Hall, the concert was filled with memorable performances and appearances that prompted the President to jokingly thank BET for "...agreeing to film Barack Obama's block party" after which he turned to guest Dave Chappelle and said, "You got your block party. I've got my block party."

Some highlights of the night included:

Common and Yolanda Adams performing a soulful rendition of his Oscar-winning song "Glory."
