Watch Barack Obama Sing a Little Al Green


Yesterday President Obama was in town messing up your commute fund-raising. His fourth stop of the whirlwind tour was at the Apollo Theater where, as you see in the video above, he expanded his known talents into the musical arena. Just a few bars come out — “I’m…so in love,” from Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” (you know, Obama’s 2012 re-election theme) — to the cheers of the crowd.

Add this to kissing babies and shaking hands and holding elderly ladies’ noses, a politician’s work is never done!

Obama was apparently inspired by Green, who performed at the event, but humble about his own abilities: “I cannot sing like you, but I just wanted to show my appreciation,” he said.

In any case, one thing is clear: America’s Presidentz Got Singing!
