You know former president Barack Obama wasn’t about to have anyone basic performing for his event — which is why he only got the best in entertainment to take the stage.

Chance the Rapper, The National and Gloria Estefan closed out The Obama Foundation Summit, a two-day leadership event in Chicago for “civic leaders from around the world.” The event streamed live on YouTube and Facebook.

“Rise Up” singer Andra Day sang the opening song before Chance took the stage with Obamas, Barack and former First Lady Michelle. He also performed the Hamilton track “Dear Theodosia” with Lin-Manuel Miranda and Francis and the Lights. After Estefan, Lena Waithe and Aziz Ansari took the stage to introduce Nas.
