Colbie Caillat checked in with her Twitter followers (@ColbieCaillat) after performing at the White House for the 2011 Easter Egg Roll. The singer songwriter, joined by her family, also got to meet President Obama for the second time this month after performing at a Chicago fundraiser. The 25-year-old, who cried when Obama won the 2008 election and has said she thinks “our country is in safe hands”, writes:
Yesterday I sang the National Anthem on the White House balcony standing next to The Obama family. It was 1 of the best moments of my life!
The Obama’s were so sweet, real, down to earth, & engaging. They are a solid family. Also tall & beautiful! My entire family got to meet em!
The President hugged my grand parents & @jusajus’s mom! Oh & their dog Bo is so cute! Getting a tour of the white house was amazing.
