Barack Obama

Back at the end of January, we discovered that President Barack Obama has a pretty decent set of pipes on him when he sang a little bit of Al Green at a fundraiser. Did you miss it? We’re not really sure how you could have, but just in case you did, here it is:

And guess what? He’s done it again! During an event at the White House on Tuesday, our fearless leader got up to thank Rolling Stones member Mick Jagger and blues great B. B. King for performing—only to find himself joining the jam session. And with spectacular results, too! Obama crooned the blues standard “Sweet Home Chicago,” and he totally killed it. Check it out here:

According to NPR, the musical evening was in celebration of Black History Month. The full concert, entitled “In Performance at the White House: Red, White and Blues” will air on PBS next Monday, February 27 at 9pm EST. Be sure to tune in then for more great music, including performances from Buddy Guy, Susan Tedeschi, and Jeff Beck!
