"America's First Lady will be holding a huge celebrity-packed party for her birthday at the White House next year and, as she adores Adele and Beyoncé, she has asked them both to sing," a source said.

"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 Obamas will pay Adele's expenses as it's a private party, not a State one."

Adele is also rumoured to have been asked to sing at Jennifer Aniston's wedding to Justin Theroux.
