Barack Obama is a President worthy of the internet age. Last night, while hosting BET's Love and Happiness" event on the South Lawn of the White House, he danced to Drake's "Hotline Bling" and it was as marvelous as it sounds.
According to Complex, Usher (who performed live at the event, along with Jill Scott, Common, The Roots, De La Soul, Bell Biv DeVoe, and others) personally captured the POTUS dance on video. So thank you, Usher.
President Obama has made his love of music and the arts clear time and again during his presidency. The "Love and Happiness" event is the last he'll host at the White House, and he got a little sentimental about it while addressing the audience.
"We've had Bob Dylan and we've had Jennifer Hudson. Gloria Estefan and Los Lobos. Aretha, Patti, Smokey. I've had Paul McCartney singing 'Michelle' to Michelle and Stevie singing 'Happy Birthday,'" he said, according to WTOP. "We've had Buddy Guy and Mick Jagger getting me to sing 'Sweet Home Chicago.' So this has been one of our favorite traditions, and it's with a little bit of bittersweetness that this is our final musical evening as president and first lady."
