President Barack Obama will deliver his final State of the Union address on Tuesday night starting at 9 p.m. EST.


As Reuters reported, the White House has already signaled that Obama will look to strike a more optimistic tone during the address, to contrast what has been described as negative messaging by Republicans heading into this year's presidential elections.

The event is being streamed via the White House YouTube channel, and can be seen below.
