Video: Former US Secretary of State actually sings Call Me Maybe (No, really)

While Barack Obama’s version of the Carly Rae Jepsen hit was some expert dubbing, this was all real…

THE SONG ‘CALL ME MAYBE’ may well be taking over the world and making its singer Carly Rae Jepsen supreme leader such is the extent to which it has infiltrated all parts of life.

You may remember the Barack Obama version of it that we showed you earlier this month which was all about dubbing and expert video editing.

But this version by the former US Secretary of State Colin Powell is the real deal.

Appearing on CBS This Morning in the US, the former Bush administration official got into a quick duet with host Gayle King for no apparent reason other than he’s a decent singer. Well, not really.
