Video: President Obama Sings 'Sweet Home Chicago' at 'Blues Night' in White House


The President takes the mic handed by Mick Jagger and helps send everyone home by singing the popular blues tune at the end of the concert.

President Barack Obama once again showed off his pipes. After belting Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" last January, he sang a classic blues tune, "Sweet Home Chicago", during a recent intimate blues-themed concert inside the East Room of the White House.

After thanking everyone who came to the gig which also featured Jeff Beck, Obama was challenged by Buddy Guy to sing the closing number for the people in the room. Noting that he heard his rendition of Green's song, Guy encouraged the commander-in-chief, "You gotta keep it up."

Mick Jagger then came forward and handed the mic to the President. "Come on, baby don't you want to go," the President finally complied and sang the lines twice. He briefly handed the mic to B.B. King before taking it back to croon the title lyrics, "Sweet Home Chicago".
