President Obama is singing the blues, but it's not over any political fallout. The First Crooner belted out a few bars of "Sweet Home Chicago" last night with music icons Mick Jagger and B.B. King.

This isn't the first time the president showed off his pipes -- he sang Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" at the Apollo Theater last month. With that in mind, blues legend Buddy Guy did a little coaxing:

"You started something, you gotta keep it up now," Guy said, pointing to the president.

Jagger handed the microphone to Obama, and the president then sang a little shoutout to his hometown of Chicago. 

The music A-listers were gathered at the White House for the "Red, White and Blues" concert, which is scheduled to air on PBS on February 27.
