The Obama family attended the 32nd annual “Christmas in Washington” concert this weekend benefiting the Children’s National Health System and met with some happy helpers before the big show!
The President, along with the First Lady and daughters Malia and Sasha talked with a few young hospital patients, who got into the holiday spirit by dressing as elves!
"Hey, you guys, you going to help us?" Mrs. Obama asked, who was collecting presents for the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington D.C.
After the five children helped the first family collect a few gifts, President Obama told them, “Good job, elves. Nice job.”
Before heading back to the North Pole, the elves took a few pictures with the family, and managed to get in a couple of goofy shots as well! (Notice the boy on the far right!)
The concert included performances from Sheryl Crow, Janelle Monae, the Backstreet Boys, Anna Kendrick and lead singer of Train, Pat Monahan. Hugh Jackman served as the master of ceremonies.
Afterwards, President Obama urged Americans to remember the lessons of charity and compassion taught by Jesus Christ. "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 said.
The Christmas concert will be broadcast Friday, December 20 on TNT.
