Obama sings again; this time, ‘Sweet Home Chicago’


President Obama hosted a blues concert at the White House on Tuesday night in honor of Black History Month, which featured performances by B.B. King, Buddy Guy, and Obama himself.

The President was egged on to belt out a few lines of "Sweet Home Chicago" at the behest of blues legends King and Guy, the Washington Post reported

“You done started something. You gotta keep it up now,” Guy said.

“You can do it! ” King added.

This is not the first time Obama has sung a tune in front of an audience; last month, video of him singing a few notes of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” went viral.
