"Thank you to Ford's Theatre Society for tonight, and your continued dedication to education and leadership in the arts-the impact they have on society is invaluable and something we will continue to cherish throughout time", the statement added.

US President Donald Trump revealed new details on Friday (June 9) about the closely guarded medical condition of Melania Trump, the first lady, saying that she underwent a four-hour operation and that her recovery would keep her from travelling overseas with him.

Trump chose to stay away from the public spotlight after she was released from the hospital following a kidney procedure.

The president, before departing Friday on the trips, told reporters the reason she didn't go on either trip is that doctors told her she couldn't fly for a month.

Her office has declined to provide additional details about her condition, citing privacy rights.

First Lady Melania Trump stepped out solo Sunday night to attend an annual gala in Washington DC as her husband landed in Singapore ahead of the highly-anticipated meeting with Kim Jong Un.

She delivered remarks at the end of performances, thanking the theater and performers, according to the first lady's office. "And she's doing great".

But in a slightly more awkward moment when the pair made their first appearance together in more than 23 days, at an event honoring gold star families at the White House last week, the president joked his wife had left him following rumors about the first lady's absence from the public eye.

A source spoke to Hollywood Life and revealed that they have not been able to see nor talk to the first lady.

Mr Trump then added: "And you know what?"

This isn't the first time the first lady has likely used fashion as a way of speaking without saying a word.

Although she remained out of the spotlight for almost a month, Melania Trump has proven that she is ready to get back to performing her duties as a first lady, appearing solo Sunday night as Honorary Chair at the annual gala that pays tribute to former President Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Theatre.
