Does President Barack Obama have a singing career in his future?
At Thursday's fundraiser in Harlem, the President showcased his singing skills in front of a crowd that included Rev. Al Green.
Obama's choice of song during the fundraiser, held at the legendary Apollo Theater, was Green's 1971 hit Let's Stay Together.
I'm . . . so in love with you, he crooned to the crowd of 1,400.
Those guys didn't think I would do it . . . I told you I was gonna do it, I told you I was gonna do it, said the President.
The sandman did not come out. Don't worry, Rev., I cannot sing like you, but I just wanted to show my appreciation, he added.
The fundraiser was capped off with performances from Green himself, as well as Grammy Award-winning singer India Arie.
Obama's appearance at the Apollo was just one of four fundraising events Thursday night. The 50-year-old also made stops at Upper East Side restaurant, Daniel (where two separate events were held) and director Spike Lee's home, where tickets were $35,800 a pop, according to WNYC.
On Friday morning, Twitter feeds were flooded with Let's Stay Together, Al Green and Obama singing as trending topics.
