During last weekend’s stop on her “Becoming” book tour in The District, First Lady Michelle Obama was surprised onstage by husband Barack Obama.

President Barack Obama appeared on stage Saturday with flowers in hand and compared his entrance to Jay-Z making an appearance during a Beyoncé tour.

“This is like – you know when Jay-Z comes out during the Beyoncé concert? … Like, Crazy in Love?” he said.

While Michelle told the crowd, “You don’t get this at every show.”

The event was moderated by former white house adviser Valerie Jarrett. The Obamas talked about how they met at a law firm in Chicago as well as the current state of politics.

“Becoming” has already sold 725,000 copies making it one of the biggest book debuts of the year.

As previously reported by WHUR, Obama has another D.C. event scheduled for this upcoming Sunday November 25, 2018. The price for tickets currently available for Sunday’s event starts as high as $250. However, ten percent of all ticket sales from the tour will be donated to charities, schools, and community groups.
