President Obama sings the blues

In much lighter news: At a White House concert last night marking Black History Month and celebrating the blues, President Obama again took the mic.

He was challenged by the musicians on stage to follow up his Al Green "I'm So In Love With You" performance.

After initially laughing off the offer, the President took the microphone and sang several lines of "Sweet Home Chicago" from his spot in the front row. He tried handing the mic back more than once, but continued singing, even alternating lines with BB King.

The concert featured music legends and contemporary major artists, including King and Mick Jagger, as a celebration of Blues music and in recognition of Black History Month. The concert, airing next week on PBS, is part of the "In Performance at the White House" series
