(Newser) – If you thought the recent clip of President Obama singing was a fluke, think again: "He does have a beautiful voice, and he sings to me all the time," Michelle Obama told Jay Leno last night. Her husband often sings that very same song (Al Green's "Let's Stay Together"), she said, adding, "He sings a lot of Al Green, Marvin Gaye, a little Stevie [Wonder]. He likes the classics."

As for Mitt Romney's rendition of "America the Beautiful"? A diplomatic first lady said, "It's ... a beautiful song. It is America's song. And it's a song that's meant to be sung by every American." Obama, who is in California to promote her Let's Move healthy eating campaign, also convinced Leno to eat some nutritious food including apples, honey, and some veggies. Leno once told a magazine that 1969 was the last time he ate a vegetable, the AP notes. Click through to the Huffington Post for another clip from the interview.

WOWEEEE !!! President Obama has so many talents . . . he is totally cool and quite a charismatic leader . . . so glad to have a President that can have fun while taking care of business in the midst of all the BS the Repukes are throwing around . . . oh, trying to imitate him ('cause he is so cool) is disastrous for most . . . they really look ridiculous . . . because you either have it or you don't . . . guess the old saying is quite true . . . 'imitation is the highest form of flattery' !!! OBAMA 2012

LOL. I sometimes sing parts of songs to the wife to get a smile from her. The acoustics in the white house must be great. Brave considering you have the secret service around.. ; ) In the jungle, the might jungle, the lion sleeps tonight.... ( Not a stab at Obama, I like falsetto)
