Chance the Rapper made the most of what might be his last chance to rock the White House. The Chicago MC brought a choir along with him to Thursday night's (Dec. 1) 94th annual National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony for a rousing rendition of "Sunday Candy." You could tell he nailed it because not only were President Obama and the First Lady bobbing their heads, but daughter Sasha was singing along with a big smile on her face as Chance warmed the crowd with help from Nico Segal and the Social Experiment.

 

He got into it for sure.

And did we mention Pres. Obama sang "Jingle Bells"?

 

The ceremony -- hosted by Eva Longoria -- also featured performances from Kelly Clarkson, the Lumineers, James Taylor, Yolanda AdamsGarth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood. Some scenes from their night.

 

The musicians all performed holiday songs. The event was taped for broadcast Dec. 5 on Hallmark Channel. The tree is on the Ellipse south of the White House. President Calvin Coolidge started the National Christmas Tree tradition in 1923.
