BET celebrated President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday night with BET Presents Love & Happiness: An Obama Celebration.
Timelines were flooded with #ThankYouObama messages while the concert that took place on the White House’s South Lawn last month aired on BET.
The star-studded musical celebration served as “a love letter to the president and first lady” according to Connie Orlando, the cable network’s senior VP of specials, music, and news and featured powerhouse performances from Jill Scott, Janelle Monaé, Common, Usher, Bell Biv DeVoe, The Roots, De La Soul, Yolanda Adams, Michelle Williams, Kierra Sheard, and former Hamilton star Leslie Odom, Jr.
