President Obama Sings with Mick Jagger and B.B. King (WATCH!)
The President just can’t stop singing! People Magazine reports that a month after the Prez sang a few bars of Al Green at the Apollo, he sang in the East Room of the White House with Mick Jagger, B.B. King and Jeff Beck. Check out the video of Obama singing below:
Obama joined in for “Sweet Home Chicago” (a nod to his hometown) as part of In Performance at the White House: Red, White and Blues, which will air on local PBS stations on Monday, Feb. 27, at 9 p.m. ET.
Obama’s not the star of the show; he spent most of the night grooving in his seat (and sometimes even getting up to dance) with First Lady Michelle Obama.
“This music speaks to something universal,” Obama said. “No one goes through life without both joy and pain, triumph and sorrow. The blues gets all of that, sometimes with just one lyric or one note.”
What do you think of Obama’s voice? He’s no superstar, but I’m glad he can let loose! If you haven’t seen it, make sure you also check out the video of Obama shooting a marshmallow gun in the White House.
He must be happy that the jobs reports are getting better – and that the Republican presidential candidates are getting worse!
