President Obama just hosted his final White House State Dinner. Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton, James Taylor, chef Mario Batali, comedian Jerry Seinfeld, actor Roberto Benigni, and New York governor Andrew Cuomo were there. But so were Chance the Rapper and Frank Ocean.

Chance and his father Ken Williams-Bennett -- who was the President's former deputy assistant during his Senate days -- broke the news on Twitter. Frank Ocean also kept the White House invites in the family, bringing his mother Katonya Breaux. The proud mom lovingly tweeted "I am so blessed to have a son that includes me in his once in a lifetime events!" She also confirmed having hugged Michelle Obama.

If you missed seeing Chance at the White House, he'll be back December 1 to perform at the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony.
