Bill Clinton had his saxophone. Barack Obama? Well, he's got the blues!
The president showed off his fierce vocal prowess last night at a White House concert celebrating Black History Month when he took the mic and sang along to "Sweet Home Chicago" surrounded by a bevy of music greats.
Obama hosted the fête "In Performance at the White House: Red, White and Blues" in the East Room, which was transformed into a rollicking blues club complete with stage and moody lighting.
On hand was a roster of powerhouse artists, including B.B. King, Mick Jagger, Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy and Susan Tedeschi. Actress Taraji P. Henson played host, and Obama's wife, Michelle, was cheering in the crowd.
Toward the end of he night, as the festivities wound down and Obama thanked everyone for coming, Guy wouldn't let the president off the hook.
"I heard you singing Al Green," Guy told the president, clearly referring to a fund-raiser last month in which Obama crooned his version of "Let's Stay Together."
