President Obama Sings Al Green Tune on Apollo Theater Stage in Harlem
Making his Apollo Theater singing debut in Harlem last night, President Barack Obama stunned the audience of about 1,400 at the fundraising event with a smooth delivery of the lyrics “I’m so in love with you” taken from Al Green’s timeless hit song from 1972: “Let’s Stay Together.”
It was a tribute to the soul singer and Reverend Al Green, who was in attendance, but it was also perhaps a call to supporters, asking them to stick with him for the 2012 presidential elections. Al Green sang at the event along with soul vocalist India.Arie, a singer that is so under-appreciated, we hope the President’s support and love for her music will give her the exposure she deserves.
