Barack Obama may be one of the most influential men in the world - but that doesn't mean he's forgotten his job of being an embarrassing dad.

The US President celebrated American's Independence Day on Monday with a White House concert that featured rapper Kendrick Lamar.

Following up the formalities, he turned his attention to his eldest daughter, Malia.

"And just because it's a job of a father to embarrass his daughters, I've got one last job," he said.

"It just so happens that we celebrate our country's birthday on the same day that we celebrate my eldest daughter's birthday," he added before beginning to sing 'Happy Birthday'.
