Usher is never going to top this birthday with the Obamas


Life can’t be too bad being Usher; talented, handsome, Justin Bieber’s manager, and he makes you wanna leave the one you’re with…

And one day he’ll be able to show grandkids a video of Barack Obama and Michelle Obama singing Happy Birthday to him at the White House.

It wasn’t even for a milestone birthday either, it was for the mediocre age of 37.

Still, here are five things we’ve learned from the video

  1. Barack’s got a bit of a baritone going on,
  2. Michelle would wipe the floor with you in an arm wrestle,
  3. Barack’s handshake is stronger than his clap,
  4. They use extra long lighters in the White House
  5. And the cupcakes there could be better, much better…

Happy Birthday from POTUS & FLOTUSSo 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
