President Obama: Crooner-in-chief
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama appears to be a good mood after the “best week ever,” singing at a speaking engagement on Wednesday.
The President serenaded a crowd in Tennessee as he answering questions about Obamacare.
The crooner-in-chief was responding to a question posed by a man named Davy Crocket, who inquired about his ability to obtain social security benefits.
“Your name’s really Davy Crockett?” Obama asked. When the man said ‘yes,’ Obama asked where his beaver skin hat was, per the American folk tale character.
Crockett responded it was at home.
Davy Crockett theme
Obama then sang a few words of the Davy Crockett theme song before promising to check with the Social Security administrator about the hold-up.
This comes only a week after all eyes were on the President as he sang “Amazing Grace” to a somber community while delivering the eulogy for South Carolina state senator and Pastor Clementa Pinckney. Pinckney was one of nine victims from the Charleston shooting massacre.
Sweet Home Chicago
The President’s vocal range was also tested in 2012, when blues star Buddy Guy spontaneously invited the President to sing with him while at an event at the White House. The two took turns singing lines from the Al Green song, “Sweet Home Chicago.”
