“He nailed it!” exclaimed R&B great, Al Green. This is in response to the footage of President Obama belting out a snippet of Green’s classic, “Let’s Stay Together” going viral last week. On Thursday, Obama delivered a promised impromptu performance at the Harlem Apollo Theater during a NYC fundraiser. The soul legend went on to add, “I was thrilled that the President even mentioned my name.” Going on a light-hearted political tip he added, “and if the President can get the economy going again and get everything going that he wants to, then we’ll all be together.” Catch the famous crooning of our President after the jump!
