Former POTUS Barack Obama shares a list of his favorite books & songs!

No matter what, this man, will always remain peoples’ president, and my vote will forever be for Barack Obama. His tenure of eight years as the POTUS was full of achievements for himself and his people. The way people admire Barack Obama as a leader is something unique.
