It’s no secret that the President Obama and his family have a deep-rooted friendship with Chance the Rapper. After all, Chance and Obama have dinners together and even have pretty awesome dance battles when the time is right. But now, the Chicago native can proudly say that he’s helping the POTUS and the rest of the White House get into the holiday spirit. Today, the rapper will be performing at the 94th annual White House tree lighting ceremony to remind us that Christmas is right around the corner, and we couldn’t be any more stoked.
The “No Problem” singer will be joined by Kelly Clarkson and Yolanda Adams to perform at President’s Park. If you weren’t lucky enough to win tickets see Chance live from the tree lighting, don’t worry—this American tradition will be available to livestream on the White House’s Youtube channel starting at 4:30 p.m. EST. If you’re not able to tune in today, the Hallmark Channel will also be broadcasting the event on Friday, December 2 at 7 p.m. EST.
Proud to announce I'll giving a private performance at the @WhiteHouse Christmas Tree Lighting. One of the biggest honors as an artist.— Lil Chano From 79th (@chancetherapper) September 28, 2016
The event will be hosted by Eva Longoria and will also include performances from Marc Anthony, Garth Brooks, The Lumineers, and more. With a lineup this awesome, we’re sure that it'll be a can’t miss event. Be sure to tune in, grab some hot chocolate, and bust out your ugliest Christmas sweater, because it’s finally starting to feel like the holiday season. While you’re at it, be sure to track Chance and the rest of tonight’s performers on Bandsintown to see when they’ll be coming to a venue near you!
