VIDEO: Pres. Obama sings "Sweet Home Chicago"

President Barack Obama is adding to his repertoire, tackling the blues classic "Sweet Home Chicago" with B.B. King and an all-star band that included Mick Jagger last night.

It wasn't quite as moving as his version of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together," but he may certainly have found another career if he wants it. The performance was part of "In Performance at the White House: Red, White and Blues," which will air on PBS on Monday at 9 p.m.
