During a January 19 fundraiser at New York’s Apollo Theater, President Barack Obama caused a sensation when he launched into a brief, spontaneous a cappella take on Al Green’s classic “Let’s Stay Together” that set the Internet on fire. Not only did his campaign take the clip and turn it into a ringtone, but all the attention lifted sales of the song a whopping nearly 500 percent.
Now, the First Lady is saying that the president’s performance wasn’t necessarily an isolated incident and he “does have a beautiful voice, and he sings to me all the time.”
When pressed by Jay Leno during an appearance on “The Tonight Show,” Michelle Obama told the host that the president “sings a lot of Al Green, Marvin Gaye, a little Stevie [Wonder]. He likes the classics.”
