Events: John Lewis Turns 75, and Everyone in Atlanta Came to Celebrate

It was the place to be last Saturday night.

U.S. Congressman John Lewis celebrated his 75th Birthday at the Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA.
Did you go?

Well, it seemed everyone else did!

It was a star-studded birthday gala for the civil rights icon, John Lewis.

The event began with a VIP dinner, which was followed by the gala itself. It lasted about 4 hours. 

And at one point I was concerned for the elders - are they used to partying that hard?

Guests included Alfre Woodward, singer Dionne Warwick, Tichina Arnold, Regina Belle, Oscar winner Jennifer Holiday and music duo The Indigo Girls.

The celebration comes on what has been a meaningful year for Lewis. He recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Selma march and joined with thousands across the nation including the president and the first lady.

The event attracted socialites and politicians. It was a business casual celebration, but of course, folks couldn't resist wearing their tuxedos and ball gowns.

The congressman called them out on it, too. He said: 
"Ya'll got all dressed up to come to the Tabernacle?"

My favorite part was when the congressman was giving his thank yous and then the DJ started to play Pharrell's "Happy." Lewis stopped what he was preaching and busted a move.

Check out this video recap of the event:
