President Obama Sings "Let's Stay Together"

Who knew President Obama had such a fine singing voice?

The president did Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" more than justice when he sang a snippet on stage at a fundraiser at the Apollo Theater last night in Harlem.

President Obama sang, "I...I'm so in love with you," getting a huge response from the crowd of 1,400.

And one notable guest was in the audience, too -- Rev. Al Green himself!

Obama noted, as he pointed backstage, "Those guys didn't think I would do it. I told you I was gonna do it."

Did the president do it on a dare?!

Obama joked, "Don't worry, Rev, I cannot sing like you, but I just wanted to show my appreciation. And send a message to campaign donors."

Obama had been busy with fundraising events on Thursday, but this has to be the highlight of his appearances. Politico reports that he likely raised $3.1 million from his fundraisers yesterday.

If that whole president thing doesn't work out, maybe Obama could have a recording career?

Everybody's doing it these days, right?
