Mick Jagger Praises President Obama for His 'Courageous' Singing


The Rolling Stones star says of the president, 'I thought he was courageous, because there was some element of reluctance.'

Mick Jagger applauds President Barack Obama for being "courageous" to take the mic and sing at a recent concert in the White House. The Rolling Stones frontman praises the commander-in-chief, saying he did "very well" at the blues-themed gig.

"I thought he was courageous, because there was some element of reluctance," Jagger told Associated Press. The 68-year-old rocker, who's the one handing the mic to the president, noted that "it was a hard moment for the president to get out of."

In a separate interview with The Washington Post, Jagger recalls the moment he gave the mic to the president. He states, "That wasn't on the list of things I expected to do. It was just a moment. And I was the only one with a spare mike!"

To AP, Jagger called performing at the White House a "surreal gig experience." He continued to gush, "I loved it. It was really unusual, surreal, and strange, but very enjoyable ... I went out there and I tried to put out my best."

President Obama sang the closing number, "Sweet Home Chicago", for the people inside the the East Room. It was Buddy Guy who prodded him to perform, saying, "I heard you singin' Al Green, so you done started somethin'! You gotta keep it up now."
