Let’s all wish our President Barack Obama a very happy 50th birthday! Obama kicked off his bday celebration on Wednesday with burgers and fries on Capitol Hill. It continued with a fundraiser in his hometown of Chicago where R&B superstar Jennifer Hudson sang. There were also performances by jazz musician Herbie Hancock and rock band OK Go.
Later that night Obama celebrated at a dinner party where he mentioned his real birthday present would be waiting in Washington D.C. when he returned–his eldest daughter Malia returning home from summer camp.
Obama’s celebrations will continue today in D.C. with a toast with the White House staff and a party with family and friends.
