Watch Barack Obama Sing a Little Al Green

Yesterday President Obama was in town messing up your commute fund-raising. His fourth stop of the whirlwind tour was at the Apollo Theater where, as you see in the video above, he expanded his known talents into the musical arena. Just a few bars come out -- "I' in love," from Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" (you know, Obama's 2012 re-election theme) -- to the cheers of the crowd.

Add this to kissing babies and shaking hands and holding elderly ladies' noses, a politician's work is never done!

Obama was apparently inspired by Green, who performed at the event, but humble about his own abilities: "I cannot sing like you, but I just wanted to show my appreciation," he said.

In any case, one thing is clear: America's Presidentz Got Singing!

It's a beautiful thing. Love IS in the air all around the President. Including for the Secret Service back on the homefront at Obama's family home in Chicago, as imagined in this funny YouTube video called "Obama's Secret Service." Enjoy:
