President Obama sings 'Happy Birthday' to his daughter at Fourth of July celebrations

Even though your dad is President of the United States, that doesn’t mean he can’t embarrass you.

President Obama sings 'Happy Birthday' to his daughter at Fourth of July celebrations

In fact, it just means he can do it in front of even more people and broadcast it to the entire world!

President Obama was hosting the White House’s annual Fourth of July celebrations yesterday - his last in office. And although, the original plans for the usual BBQ and fireworks out on the lawn were cancelled due to rain, they still threw a bash in the White House’s East Room,

And it handily doubled up as a birthday party for the Obamas’ eldest Malia, who just so happens to be have been born on America’s Independence Day

Joining Janelle Monae and Kendrick Lamar on stage, Obama couldn’t resist the opportunity to tease his now-18-year-old and lead the audience in a rendition of ’Happy Birthday’, saying:

"It’s a job of a father to embarrass his daughters."

Skip to 3.50 mins in for Obama’s singing - it’s not half bad.

A very sweet moment.
