President Obama & The First Family Light National Christmas Tree [VIDEO]

Majic 107.5 / 97.5 Atlanta

President Obama and the First Family lit the National Christmas Tree last night in Washington, D.C.

This tradition dates back to 1923, when President Calvin Coolidge walked from the White House to the Ellipse to light a 48-foot fir tree decorated with 2,500 electric bulbs in red, white and green, as a local choir and a “quartet” from the U.S. Marine Band performed. Ninety years later, this American holiday tradition continues to bring citizens together to share in a message of hope and peace.

Watch the ceremony below:

93.1 WZAK

Hello Beautiful

Folorunsho is also a fashion designer and philanthropist who is worth at least $3.3 billion, $500 million richer than the big O whose wealth Forbes magazine estimated at $2.7 billion in September.

Katt Williams Has Shortest Retirement In Comedic History

K97.5

Comedian Katt Williams sure knows how to keep people talking about him. After tearfully announcing his retirement in a video, he announces he’s coming out of retirement. Williams’ retirement lasted all of four days.

At the beginning of the week, Katt Williams announced he would be retiring from comedy again. (He has made this same announcement before.) It seemed really serious. Willams’ eyes seemed to be fighting back tears and he really seemed stressed when he said he was “kinda done” with comedy. However, four days into his self-imposed exile, Katt’s management squad says he isn’t going anywhere but to the next stop on his comedy tour.
