Obama sang Al Green’s song “Let’s Get Together” at a fundraiser. The cost of seeing Obama sing Al Green you ask? Oh, only $2000 a ticket at the apollo theater, where 1400 attended. The event was one of several Big Apple fundraisers the president attended Thursday while his would-be Republican foes were sparring at a debate in South Carolina. Others had price tags of $5,000, $15,000 or even $35,800. But some supporters got to hear the presidential pipes for as little as $100.
“I told you I was going to do it!” Obama shouted to someone just offstage. “The Sandman did not come out!”
“Don’t worry, Rev. I cannot sing like you,” he joked. “I just wanted to show my appreciation.”
