Last month, Barack Obama, the President of the United States Of America, sang a few bars of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” at the Apollo Theater and sounded fucking incredible. He should’ve maybe left it there. Last night, the East Room of the White House hosted an all-star blues concert that featured B.B. King, Mick Jagger, Buddy Guy, Jeff Beck, and a bunch of other shows. At the end of the show, after being prodded by Buddy Guy, Obama sang a few bars of “Sweet Home Chicago,” sounding something less than fucking incredible. He didn’t embarrass himself or anything, but let’s just say that the man could stand to work on his timing a bit. Still, you have to hand it to him for not being a tiny bit scared of that microphone. Watch it at the Washington Post website.
