POTUS feels that Memphis rhythm

After President Obama's visit to Memphis' Booker T. Washington High School a few months ago, it appears some of our Memphis rhythm stuck with him. He recently crooned a little of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" for audiences at the Apollo Theater, charming the crowd and showing off his vocal chops. Don't worry, Mr. President. We understand how the sound of this city can creep into your bones.

Al Green recorded a total of 12 albums with Memphis recording studio Hi Records, including the Platinum-selling album "I'm Still In Love With You" and Gold-selling "Let's Stay Together."
