The president of the USA reportedly concluded his winter break by visiting Eddie Vedder in Hawaii.

According to a report by Associated Press, Obama took his daughters, Sasha and Malia, to visit with Vedder and his family in Kailua, on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. The Obamas spent a two-week holiday in a vacation home nearby.

The Obamas and Vedder’s family reportedly spent around 20 minutes together on Saturday (January 3).

In 2012, Vedder helped raise $1.7million at a fundraiser for Obama’s re-election campaign. The singer performed two Pearl Jam Songs, “Rise” and “Without You”, plus covers of James Taylor’s “Millworker” and Neil Young’s “Rockin’ In The Free World”, at a $20,000 ticket event, and spoke to the crowd about how he was able to achieve his dream of being a musician.
