It was Friday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 7, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Cheerleader by OMI. American Ultra, directed by Nima Nourizadeh, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while A Full Life by Jimmy Carter was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Love Island. If you liked videogames you were probably playing A Fistful of Gun or Grand Kingdom.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2015 or at August 07 across the years.
