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.

Look Back at Obama's Star-Studded Inaugural Concert in 2009

Donald Trump is definitely not the only president to have a pre-inaugural concert at the Lincoln Memorial, as he suggested at his event. President Barack Obama hosted one in 2009 and it featured so many stars!

Obama‘s concert featured such stars as Beyonce, U2, Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Shakira, Josh Groban, Usher, John Legend, John Mellencamp, Sheryl Crow, James Taylor, Jamie Foxx, Mary J. Blige, Garth Brooks, Renee Fleming, Heather Headley, and many more.

Denzel Washington, Steve Carell, Ashley Judd, Rosario Dawson, Tom Hanks, Queen Latifah, Samuel L. Jackson, and other actors also made appearances to energize the crowd of several hundred thousand people.

The performers lineup for Trump‘s inaugural concert featured much less star power.

Take a look back at the photos, which include Michelle Obama and their daughters Malia and Sasha, who were just 10 and 7 at the time!

President Obama Reveals Sasha & Malia's Reaction to Donald Trump's Election Win

President Barack Obama just gave his last press conference as the President of the United States, and some of his final thoughts were spent gushing about his daughters, Sasha, 15, and Malia, 18.

When speaking about Sasha and Malia‘s reaction to Donald Trump winning the election, he said, “They were disappointed…[but] they do not mope.”

“What makes me proudest about them…they have no assumed that because their side did not win…that automatically America has somehow rejected them or their values. I don’t think they feel that way,” the POTUS said.

“If you’re engaged and you’re involved, then there are a lot more good people than bad in this country. There is a core decency in this country,” he said.
