President Barack Obama can really bust out a tune! Who knew? The POTUS was attending and speaking at a fundraiser last night at the Apollo Theater in NYC last night. The fact that the legendary Rev. Al Green was at the same event seemed to put Obama in quite a jovial mood. After referencing the soul singer in his speech, the president ended up actually singing two lines from Green’s classic Let’s Stay Together, to the delight of the crowd. He has some serious pipes for a politician!
You can watch him in action right at the nine second mark in the video above. Right after the roars of approval died down, Obama joked, “Those guys didn’t think I would do it. I told you I was gonna do it.” He was talking about his team backstage. He also added, “Don’t worry Rev, I cannot sing like you, but I just wanted to show my appreciation.” And he’s modest too, guys.
