Now that the world knows President Obama can sing, we may catch him doing a lot more of it. At a White House blues concert last night, both Buddy Guy and Mick Jagger urged the president to bust out in song, the AP reports. After some initial hesitation, Obama took the microphone and launched into "Sweet Home Chicago." "Come on, baby don't you want to go," Obama sang twice before handing the mic to BB King—who made sure to hand it back in time for Obama to sing the line, "Sweet home Chicago."
