President Obama celebrates his 50th birthday today with family and close friends at the Whitehouse after a fundraising birthday celebration in Chicago the day before.
The musical fundraiser at the historic Aragon Ballroom in Chicago was attended by more than 1,000 people and featured performances by R&B signer Jennifer Hudson, Herbie Hancock and OK Go. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Obama's former chief of staff, also came out to celebrate with the president.
He joins the ranks of other sitting Presidents to turn 50 while presiding over our country, from Presidents Ulysses Grant, Theodore Rooselvelt andBill Clinton among others. While we can see signs of aging since he's entered this office, President Obama is still pretty looking good!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR. PRESIDENT!
