Obama Sings 'Sweet Home Chicago' With Mick Jagger And B.B. King

Obama Sings 'Sweet Home Chicago' With Mick Jagger And B.B. King

President Obama treated the East Room of the White House to his vocal stylings when he sang "Sweet Home Chicago" last night.

The President joined a blues all-star band including Mick Jagger, B.B. King, Booker T. Jones and Buddy Guy at a ceremony celebrating Black History Month and the blues, crooning along to a few bars of "Sweet Home Chicago" with the blues performers during an impromptu performance.

He was called up to the stage by Buddy Guy, who said to Obama: "I heard you singing Al Green. You done started something, and you gotta keep it up now!"

Last night's performance marks his second such foray this year; he recently sang a few lines from Al Green's song "Let's Stay Together" at a recent event at the Apollo in Harlem, with footage of the song going viral soon after.
