Obamas attend annual Christmas benefit concert


The Obamas got into the holiday spirit Sunday evening with a little help from Hugh Jackman, Sheryl Crow and Janelle Monae.

President Barack Obama and his family attended the 32nd annual Christmas in Washington concert, a benefit for the Children’s National Health System. After an evening of Christmas carols at the National Building Museum, the President said Americans should remember Jesus Christ’s lessons of charity and compassion.

“Through His example, he taught us that we should love the Lord, love our neighbours, as we love ourselves. It’s a teaching that has endured for generations, and today, it lies at the heart of my faith and that of millions of Americans, and billions around the globe,” Obama said.

“No matter who we are, or where we come from, or how we worship, it’s a message of hope and devotion that can unite all of us this holiday season,” he added.
