What’s better than visiting the White House and meeting with the POTUS and FLOTUS on your birthday? Having the POTUS and FLOTUS sing “Happy Birthday” to you, that’s what!
Usher was at the White House in honor of the National Endowment for the Humanities 50th anniversary on October 14th to perform for the Obamas.
The day just so happened to be his 37th birthday, so President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama surprised him with a presidential happy birthday serenade.
A video posted to the singer’s Facebook page shows his shocked reaction after he notices someone bringing a cupcake with a candle to him as Mr. and Mrs. Obama begin to sing the “Happy Birthday” song to him.
“Are you getting this?” Usher asks the person behind the camera.
He later shared on Facebook:
So this really happened the other night…… The President and First Lady sang me Happy Birthday at The White House & I got to perform for them. I couldn’t be more grateful for this moment and all of the birthday wishes from everyone. THANK YOU!!!!! #Blessed #OlderWiser
It’s one thing to have a conversation with the President and First Lady in the Oval Office, but having them personally sing happy birthday to you is another.
