Barack and Michelle Obama hosted the 2017 Obama Foundation Summit in their home city of Chicago, Ill. this week, where a slew of big names in entertainment, music and politics came out for the leadership event. Chance The Rapper helped close out the two-day event, performing a lengthy set for the audience, including his Hamilton soundtrack song, "Dear Theodosia."
