President Barack Obama hit up Harlem’s historic Apollo Theater last night with a new message: “Let’s stay together.”
While speaking Thursday night during a fundraiser at the Apollo, the Prez showed off some of his singing skills as he channeled legendary soul singer Al Green’s classic hit “Let’s Stay Together.”
“I…I’m so in love with you,” sang the President.
Obama then pointed backstage and explained to the cheering crowd:
“Those guys didn’t think I would do it. I told you I was gonna do it. Don’t worry Rev, I cannot sing like you, but I just wanted to show my appreciation.”
It was a star-studded fundraiser, as about 1,400 supporters attended the event, which included performances from Al Green and India Arie.
Take a look as the President does his best Al Green impersonation.
Bill Clinton may have played the sax, but Obama sings!
