“Excited to share this incredible day,” Keys gushed, tweeting a photo of her husband Swizz Beatz and son Egypt bundled up to watch Obama’s speech.

Keys also tweeted photos of her make-up artist at work and a bag of Biden and Obama cookies on her bedside table.



Keys attended two other parties, a long night for even a seasoned reveler. The following morning she seemed no less enthusiastic about the events.

“Still pinching myself!,” she tweeted. “Obama’s on FIYAH!”
