Celebrities, activists and others gave an emotional goodbye to President Obama in a new video by the White House titled “Yes We Can: Your Most Memorable Moments from the Obama Presidency.”
The video features figures including Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Jerry Seinfeld and Ellen DeGeneres, all sharing some of their favorite moments with the president.
“I never cried before, from an election result,” singer John Legend says in the video.
“When I was at the U.N. and I heard our president say that climate change is the most important issue facing, not only this generation but also future generations, it was inspiring,” DiCaprio said.
“The CVS experience with Michelle (Obama) was pretty cool and dancing with Barack at his birthday party. And he’s a good dancer. He should not get any flack for that — you’re a good dancer,” DeGeneres said.
Aside from celebrities, the video also included children’s reactions to Obama’s presidency as well as moments they enjoyed.
The video comes as the Obamas wrap up their time in the White House. On Friday night, the first family held their last party at the White House and earlier in the day, Michelle Obama gave her final speech as first lady.
Obama will give his final speech as president on Tuesday in Chicago.
