VIDEO: Cecily Strong & Sasheer Zamata Sing a Goodbye to Obama on 'SNL'

The first episode of Saturday Night Live to take place during Donald Trump‘s presidency featured a farewell to President Obama at the end of the night.

Cecily Strong and Sasheer Zamata sang an emotional version of the classic song “To Sir With Love” while a black and white photo of Obama was projected on a screen behind them.

Cecily hosted the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in 2015 and she took to her Instagram account the other day to remember the moment.

“One of the best moments of my life. Getting to sort of start to begin to try and thank this hero. As messy and awful and stupid and ugly and violent and deadly and embarrassing and idiotic as things can sometimes feel- I’m still so proud to be part of a country that produces families and people like the Obamas. Thank you for making this a better country and making me a better person,” Cecily said.

What Are Barack & Michelle Obama Doing Next?

With their time in the White House coming to a close, you may be wondering what Barack and Michelle Obama have next on their to-do list.

The 55-year-old former U.S. President has plans to write a book, work on his presidential library, and start a foundation.

“I’m not going to Wall Street,” he explained in an interview with 60 Minutes. “The amount of time that I’ll be investing in issues is going to be high. But it’ll be necessarily in a different capacity.”

“I’m going to spend time with Michelle,” he added. “You know, we got some catching up to do. We’ve both been busy.”

It looks like he and the 53-year-old former First Lady will have plenty of time to spend with each other, as their youngest daughter Sasha will still be going to high school in Washington, D.C., and their oldest daughter Malia just secured an internship with Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein.

And Michelle? She is reportedly writing a memoir.
