Watch President Obama break it down to 'Hotline Bling' at final White House musical event
October 24, 2016 at 3:15 am
The President hosted BET's "Love and Happiness: A Musical Experience" event Friday night on the South Lawn of the White House, bringing true soul to the nation's capital. Big name artists like Janelle Monae, The Roots, Jill Scott, Bell Biv DeVoe, De La Soul and many more brought down the house with epic performances
Usher also performed, and on his way out the door, gave social media a glimpse at all the excitement. President Obama is really in the moment as Drake's Hotline Bling blares from the speakers, he can't help but give way to the beat. Usher caught the magic on his phone
Okay, Barry! We see you.
