(Newser) – When the legendary Reverend Al Green is at your fundraiser, what choice do you have other than to burst into one of his songs onstage? That's what President Obama did last night at the Apollo Theater, singing the first line of Green's "Let's Stay Together" to cheers. Pointing backstage afterward, he joked, "Those guys didn't think I would do it. I told you I was gonna do it." Guess this adds a little fuel to Obama's recent claim that he's not as "aloof" as the media make him out to be. Click for more on the event. (Read more President Obama stories.)
