The question that's on everyone's mind has, finally, been answered:

Yes, President Obama can sing.


That little ditty happened at one of four fundraising events President Obama attended yesterday in New York.

Here's how USA Today put it:

He was on stage at the Apollo Theater last night in Harlem when President Obama broke into a little bit of Al Green's hit song Let's Stay Together.

"I…I'm…soooo in love with you," Obama crooned, drawing cheers and applause from the crowd of 1,400 that actually included Al Green.

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

And here's the original:

You're welcome.
