DC Senior Who Danced With Obamas Celebrates 110th Birthday With Mayor Bowser

When asked for some words of wisdom, McLaurin said, "All I know is just live for the Lord"

Happy birthday, Grandma Virginia!

The D.C. centenarian who gained internet fame for dancing with Barack and Michelle Obama for her 106th birthday celebrated her 110th birthday with Mayor Muriel Bowser.

Virginia McLaurin marked the occasion on Thursday with Bowser and the mayor's baby daughter, Miranda.

"I heard over the internet that Miss Virginia wanted to meet Miss Miranda," Bowser said before leading a group in singing "Happy Birthday."

When asked for some words of wisdom, McLaurin said, "All I know is just live for the Lord."

McLaurin celebrated her 107th birthday with the Harlem Globetrotters, and danced at a Washington Nationals game soon after.
