President Obama landed in Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon for a whirlwind fundraising visit.

Air Force One landed at Los Angeles International Airport about 1 p.m. and Mayor Eric Garcetti was on hand to greet Obama, who then boarded a helicopter en route to one of three fundraising events in the West L.A. area.

After Marine One landed at Will Rogers State Park a half-hour later, the president’s motorcade made its way down Sunset Boulevard to the first event, a roundtable discussion at the home of “Star Trek” director J.J. Abrams. Several side streets were cordoned off with police tape to keep cars and pedestrians away.

Afterward, Obama attended a private concert in Pacific Palisades at the home of Dr. Robin Berman. Jamie Foxx performed for the guests under a large tent. Attendees said he sang Motown, including a James Brown song, and that Kelly Rowland from Destiny's Child performed with him. Among the songs was "Ain't No Mountain High Enough."
