So it turns out that even the most powerful man in the world gets nervous before his public appearances…
Right before giving one of the last big speeches of his presidency at the Democratic National Convention, President Obama got himself in the zone by listening to a bit of music, reports Uproxx.
Needing something to get him focused and prepped to speak in front of a packed house – not to mention a massive television audience – Barack went for his go-to psych-up tune, Eminem’s 8 Mile classic, Lose Yourself – what else?
Hillary Clinton’s campaign have released footage showing a snapshot of the epic moment which took place behind the scenes at the Philadelphia convention with the cameras catching Obama’s pre-match prep.
Unfortunately we only get a short glimpse of the magical moment but there’s something reassuring about the man who holds the highest office in the land gearing himself up for a big moment with a bit of classic hip-hop.
To be fair, we probably shouldn’t be too surprised – this is the same guy who has Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar on the guest list for his birthday party.
Needless to say, the speech was a hit – good job as he only had one shot at it…
