President Obama SINGS 'Sweet Home Chicago' With B.B. King & Mick Jagger At White House Blues Concert

President Obama hopped on the mic in the East Room last night where he sang "Sweet Home Chicago" with B.B. King and Mick Jagger during a White House Blues concert. See the video inside....

Last night, Mick Jagger passed the mic to President Barack Obama during a White House Blues concert and Mr. Obama belted out "Sweet Home Chicago."  And since the President's first singing debut was such a hit, why not?

The event was a part of the White House's Black History Month celebration.

Mr. Obama was first encouraged to join in by Buddy Guy who said he's heard the president sing part of an Al Green tune recently.  He told him, "You gotta keep it up."

Speaking about the concert, President Obama said,

"This music speaks to something universal.  No one goes through life without both joy and pain, triumph and sorrow. The blues gets all of that, sometimes with just one lyric or one note. "


 

Besides Buddy Guy, B.B. King (shown above) and Mick Jagger, others performers were Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews and Gary Clark Jr.  Taraji P. Henson was the program host and Booker T. Jones served as music director and band leader.

The blues concert will be part of the "In Performance at the White House" series and airs on PBS on Feb 27. 

Check the video.

I bet, if he was a white

I bet, if he was a white president, everybody will rally around him and refer to him as the coolest president ever. Blacks will be the most impressed. Obama is accused of being too black, not black enough, ghetto, not associating with black people/events enough and now he's doing too much. I swear, you can't please everybody. At the end of the day, Obama is the president but also black. We have a culture, he's part of a history, a group of people who have been through a lot in this country. At the same time, extra scrutiny of every single step, move he does just because he's black. I will continue to keep him and his family in my prayers.

I beg to differ, the most intellegent President Ever!!!, If he was another candidate of a different race, you would be perfectly okay. The man needs a breather from this mess. We all do, so by blowing off a little steam, he exercises his chops. Don't Hate, Appreciate. Find something worthy to discuss.

White folks don't like Obama

White folks don't like Obama because they wish they are half cool as him. They get intimidated by an intelligent, hard working, handsome, charming black man. They want to act like he's not doing a good job. Tell me, what the old white men did when they were in office? So, Obama is not doing anything different. Black folks don't like him because naturally some of us like to put each other down when some of us are successful. Nothing new, that's what is killing our community and Africa. Black folks will forever stay complaining about everything. People can say whatever they want to say, Obama 2012. Now, the economy will get worse before it gets better. My advice, don't get carried away with this celebrity stardom, stay focus and remember you hold the highest position.

I love president obama just

I love president obama just like the rest but I am so over his singing and dancing. Especially when my paycheck is getting smaller. there should be a lot of things to do instead of this all the dang time. trust me when I say, I voted for him and I probably will in 2012. but, he really should take this job more seriously. people are homeless and jobless and black people are catching hell bc race relations are so bad in this country now.

Oh please honey!.... Don't

Oh please honey!.... Don't go there. Obama cannot solve everyone in this country's problems. But he is doing his job one day at a time. If you are taking a pay cut, guess what, welcome to the America that George Bush created and left behind for us to live in. There are too many ignorant people who believe one person can make ALL the difference. And sadly, they're wrong. There's a numerous amount of agencies and departments who regulate too much in this country for Mr. President to save the day all the damn time. Some things are set to flow in different directions that it makes it hard for some to comprehend why some things go the way they go or why things even occur, but trust me, this fuc*@!ng government is made up of mostly racist motherf$&%ing old white men and women who are laughing at us watching how we bash our own, thinking "It's all your fault Obama!" Boy are you all wrong. Time, my friends would help, but it would take many, many, many more years.

DON'T GIVE THEM THE SATISFACTION OF KNOWING THAT THEY GOT TO US!!! I'VE RESPONDED IN THE PAST, BUT WON'T DO IN THE FUTURE. IGNORANT FOLKS WILL ALWAYS BE ON EARTH, BUT WE DON'T HAVE TO READ WHAT THEY SAY. THEY REALLY ARE RACIST LOSERS WHO ARE SOOOO MISERABLE WITH THEIR OWN LIVES THAT THEY MUST COME TO OUR TERRITORY TO EFF WITH US!!!! THEY DO NOT DESERVE MY TIME FOR SURE!!!!

Mr. President I am African

Mr. President I am African American and it will take more than charm and charisma to vote for you this time. Singing black songs while having all total white advisors won't fool me. Clinton and both Bush one and two had more black Secretaries of Departments than you. I have also watched you appointments to the FDIC, FCC and other major boards, all 95% white. You did appoint Congressman Clyburn daughter to the FCC. You don't have touch with America or black America. Now I know some will say he's hating. Nope, a spade is a spade. Barck has played us. Speaks unreal well while nothing is happening. Bailout for housing a bust. If you are a white or black politican, dont let them play you. You fall for whoever speaks good. Then you wonder why the black community has nothing? I will be voting Democrat, but please Barack don't you and Michelle start all this black stuff to increase black voter participation and allow Bill Daley, Rahm Emauel and others don't look like me have you ear! That's all folks!

Ya'll know damn well that

Ya'll know damn well that Obama did not appoint anybody black or white. His MASTERS appointed all those yankees coz they keep him in check making sure he never steer away from their agenda. Ask Hillary. Let's be foreal ya'll. Like what? Bush jnr. was really running things at the white house? Oy yeah, Bill Clinton was running things as well...LOL! Wake up folks, Hillary calls more shots than Obama and ya'll can deny all day for all I care. Facts are that. Wake up folks! Your last president was Kennedy. Ya'll got CEO's of the Corporation of America *cough* my bad...USA presidents running things....yeah right! Ask him about which foreign entities be paying his cheques. Shiiit...ya'll don't even own your DOLLAR. Federal Reserve, a private owned corporation does. You have to pay them to use that ish, to get that ish printed, meaning you are in debt for life and so are your progenies. Worse, the Fed. Reserve is a foreign entity but they call all the shots and Obama and his Lobbyst carry out its deeds. He's just the CEO for the real shot callers. Ain't nothing wrong with admitting that we vote for him coz he's black (ask Samuel Jackson) but truth is truth. He's being used just like the rest that have come and gone. Stop being narrow minded about "black this, white that" and focus on the REAL problem that's choking America. Knowledge...
