President Obama Sings ‘Sweet Home Chicago’ At White House Blues Concert

While the Republican candidates fret and prepare for tomorrow’s Western-themed debate, President Obama spent tonight at a Black History Month blues celebration in the White House, with legends such as B.B. King and Mick Jagger. Having stretched out the vocal chords earlier in the year to Al Green‘s “Let’s Stay Together,” the musicians on the stage called to him during the last song in the hopes of having him participate, too. And President Obama did not shy away from jumping into “Sweet Home Chicago.”

The President appears to have taken the microphone just to thank the artists for the night of performances, but was quickly invited to jump into the singing himself. He hesitated a bit, but not much, before hopping in. At least this time he had quite the band backing him up.
