The 24-year-old singer has reportedly accepted the invitation of the US First Lady. "Adele has graciously accepted and waived her usual fee for the high-profile private performance. She will sing a selection of her most-loved hits for the First Lady and her friends," the source added.

Knowles, 31, is expected to accept the invitation as she is known to be a friend and supporter of the Obamas. She even sung the national anthem at the President Barack Obama's second term inauguration ceremony in January, 2013.
