and it was last night here we reported on the first lady's 50th birthday at the white house. Tonight here, new details and images emerging about the toast from her husband, of course, the president.

He was visibly moved as he spoke of her love for their daughters. There were no cameras inside. But many outside, some of the faces, Samuel L. Jackson, smokey Robinson, James Taylor and TV host Rachael ray. A wrapped up Gladys knight there on a cold January night. And when magic Johnson was asked if he planned on dancing -- Oh, yeah, I'm definitely dancing. I'm going have a good time. Reporter: Among the performers, beyonce, who, of course, sang "At last" at their first inauguration. ♪ At last ♪ ♪ the skies above are blue ♪ Reporter: She was there last night, posting on instagram, right here with a member of the first family.
