This weekend, Michael Jordan turned 50 and the Air Jordan XX8 was officially launched. Celebrating both occasions, the Jordan Brand hosted an "MJ50" party in Houston on Saturday, with family and several of Michael's friends from sports and entertainment in attendance.
Among the evening's guests were Jordan's three children, his fiancé Yvette, XX8 designer Tinker Hatfield, Kobe Bryant, Nas and a full lineup of Jordan Brand athletes. The always entertaining R. Kelly also hit the stage for a live performance.
