President Obama aired out his best Al Green impersonation at a fundraiser in New York Thursday, after following the veteran soul star on stage. Singing the opening line of the singer's classic "Let's Stay Together" – "I-I'm, so-oo in love with you. . ." – the president grinned broadly while supporters whooped and clapped. "I told you I was gonna do it!" he said. Then he looked for Green in the audience: "Don't worry, Rev, I cannot sing like you."
He may not be Al Green, but Obama's singing skills are impressive. We put together a playlist of ten more songs we'd like to hear the Commander in Chief croon.
