Barack Obama + Chance The Rapper Just Gave Us A Christmas Gift For The Ages

In just over a month, Barack Obama will no longer be the President of the United States. And, while we're still not sure what a Donald Trump presidency might look like, there's one thing we can guess won't happen—it won't include Chance The Rapper.

President Obama and the Chicago rapper have formed quite the bond in recent months. It came to a head on Thursday, when the two joined forces for a Christmas tree lighting for the ages. It all went down at the White House, where Obama was joined by Chance, Kelly Clarkson, the Lumineers, Yolanda Adams, James Taylor, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, and Marc Anthony.

"If we can find that grace, anything is possible," Obama told the crowd. At one point, Chance performed a stirring rendition of his standout track "Sunday Candy," and the first family had no choice but to sing along. It was a triumphant evening, especially when Obama took the reigns on an impromptu rendition of "Feliz Navidad."

The joyous occasion marks the Obama family's last Christmas in the White House, and it looks like they saved the best for last. Watch the festivities unfold above.
