Predicate vs Functions in First order logic?

I have been so confused lately regarding difference between predicate and function in first order logic. My understanding so far is, Predicate is to show a comparison or showing a relation between two objects such as, President(Obama, America) Functions are to specify what a particular object is such as, Human(Obama) Now am I heading on right track to differentiate these two terms or I am completely wrong and need a brief explanation, I would like to have opinion from expert to clarify my knowledge(or approve my understanding). Thanks in advance Krio
