It was Sunday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 16, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Cheerleader by OMI. War Room, directed by Alex Kendrick, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Love Island. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Evoland 2 or Final Fantasy Type-0 HD.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
