President Obama showed off his vocal talents during a fundraising appearance at the legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem, NY on Thursday night. Singing a little snippet from Al Green’s 1972 hit, “Let’s Stay Together” what made it even more amusing was the fact that the Rev. Al Green was actually among the crowd of 1,400 supporters.
“To know that Rev. Al Green was here!” President Obama said looking off stage.
“I…I’m…soooo in love with you,” he sang as the crowd began to applause and cheer, reports USA Today. The president admitted that he doesn’t quite have the same amount of talent as Green. “Don’t worry, Rev, I cannot sing like you…but I just wanted to show my appreciation,” he joked.
He also pointed to people backstage, telling the audience that “These guys didn’t think I would do it, but I told them I was going to do it!”
