The singer played a two-hour set for U.S. President Barack Obama and around 500 VIP guests, including Jon Bon Jovi, Tyler Perry, James Taylor, Connie Britton and Ciara, as part of the African-American Music Appreciation Month, according to New York Post gossip column Page Six.

The publication reports Prince thrilled the crowd with hits including Kiss and Purple Rain, and the highlight of the evening came when he brought legendary singer Wonder up onstage to sing his hit Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours.

Prince went on to perform at the city's Warner Theatre on Sunday (14Jun15) and added a second show at the venue that night after tickets for the first sold out.
