A source told the MailOnline.com: "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 Beyonce, she has asked them both to sing.

"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."

The 24-year-old British singer wowed the audience with a paired down performance of 'Skyfall' at the Oscars last month, her first live performance since giving birth last October.

She was previously said to have celebrated her prestigious win by presenting her five-month old son Angelo with his very own mock statue of an Academy Award from a souvenir shop.

She posted a picture of her coveted award on Twitter alongside the joke gong, adding the caption: "and we're home! What an epic trip. Thanks for having us Hollywood!"

The baby boy - who Adele has with her boyfriend Simon Konecki - travelled to Los Angeles with her for the star-studded show.
