President Obama Sings the Blues at White House Concert

February 22, 2012  |  

President Obama is a true soul man. We already found out he could carry a tune when he sang a line of “Let’s Stay Together” at the Apollo last month, and last night Mick Jagger B.B. King, and and a blues ensemble made the president prove his soul by singing during a concert at the White House.

Music legend Buddy Guy egged the president onstage during the blues event, telling him during the finale, “We were trying to get you to help us sing that because I heard you singing Al Green. So you’ve started something. You’ve got to keep it up.”

Although he was hesitant at first, the president took the mic and belted out a few lines to “Sweet Home Chicago” and he did not disappoint with his line, “Come on… Baby don’t you want to go.”

The Black History Month special is set to air on PBS soon but for now check out President Obama’s singing in this segment below. He definitely needs to make this a part of his campaign.
