Artists React: Obama's Farewell Speech

Posted on January 11, 2017

In case you missed it, US President Barack Obama took to the stage last night (Jan. 10) to give his final farewell speech. It was both emotional and inspirational all at the same time. Among those celebrating and giving their thanks to the iconic Prez, were some of our fave artists. Here are just some of their responses:

Niall Horan



Katy Perry


History has been made. #farewell

It’s hard to believe this chapter of american politics is over, and if there’s one thing we’re REALLY gonna miss, it’s those Joe Biden gifs! Luckily for all of us, he gave us a perfect closer.

In all seriousness, President Obama was a role model for many and we’re excited to see what he does in his years to come. With that, we thought we would end this with a playlist filled with love. Beatles love to be exact. Let us know know if you saw any other artists react to Obama and his farewell speech in the comments below.
