President Obama made headlines Thursday for something other than his stance on SOPA. Appearing at a fundraiser at Harlem’s Apollo theater, the president sang the opening of the Rev. Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” in a very passable falsetto. Green had warmed up the crowd for Obama.
“I…I’m…soooo in love with you,” Obama crooned, drawing cheers and applause from the crowd of 1,400 that actually included Al Green.
“Don’t worry, Rev, I cannot sing like you,” said Obama, “but I just wanted to show my appreciation.” And send a message to campaign donors.
