The US president has a lot on his mind, but that’s doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be allowed to have fun every once in awhile. And, in a video that’s currently making the viral rounds today, President Barack Obama certainly looks like he’s having a good time – singing “Sweet Home Chicago”, rocking homage to his home city, during the finale of a blue concert at the White House on Tuesday night. Obama turns out a short, but creditable performance, aided in no small part by blue legends B.B. King and Buddy Guy.

This isn’t the first time that Obama has sung a few notes in public – last month, video of the President singing a few bars of Al Green’s classic, “Let’s Stay Together”, during a fundraiser at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem went viral.

What do you think – should he quit his day job?
