Tyler Perry and Barack Obama is What Destiny Looks Like

Looking very official himself, Tyler Perry took to the stage to introduce President Barack Obama during a fundraiser at Perry's Atlanta based film studio on Friday.

Obama raised money in film producer Tyler Perry's sprawling southwest Atlanta studio at a gala event featuring a performance by pop star Cee Lo Green. Then he spoke to those in a more elite group, including Oprah Winfrey, at Perry's 30,000-square-foot French provincial mansion along the Chattahoochee River.

Friday's tickets ranged from $500 for general admission to $2,500 and $10,000 for VIP. Then he was off to a $35,800 per person dinner at Perry's house, where about 40 guests awaited him.

Perry, introducing Obama to a predominantly African-American audience, said seeing the presidential motorcade drive through southwest Atlanta offered "a glimpse of what destiny looks like."
