Adele has reportedly been asked to sing at Michelle Obama's 50th birthday party.

According to the Daily Mail, the 'Skyfall' singer will perform at the birthday bash alongside Beyonce on January 17, 2014 at the White House in Washington DC.

A source told the newspaper: "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 Beyoncé, she has asked them both to sing. Adele has graciously accepted and waived her usual fee for the high-profile private performance."

Michella Obama is reportedly a huge fan of Adele and has pulled out all the stops to book the singer for next year's party. "She will sing a selection of her most-loved hits for the First Lady and her friends," the source added. "The Obamas will pay Adele's expenses as it's a private party, not a state one."

Adele recently stated that she has no plans to write and record a new album, insisting that she will only do so when she has "something to sing about". Her last studio LP, '21', has been a remarkable commercial success since its release.

In December last year it became the fourth biggest-selling album of all time in the UK after its sales figures overtook Oasis' '(What's The Story) Morning Glory'. It has been no less popular in the US either with figures in January of this year revealing that it had become the country's biggest-selling album for the second year in a row.
