Watch: Barack Obama sings blues classic with Mick Jagger and BB King

The US president belted out a few lines of a blues classic at a concert at the White House last night.

IT WAS A concert which featured some of the most famous blues musicians on the planet – plus the president of the United States.

Barack Obama (briefly) took the microphone at a White House concert to honour blues music last night to join in on a version of ‘Sweet Home Chicago’ with Mick Jagger and BB King. The president had been heckled by blues guitarist Buddy Guy, who said he had heard Obama singing an Al Green song last month and urged the president to sing a verse.

If November’s presidential election doesn’t go Obama’s way, looks like he could have a whole other career lined up ahead of him…
