President Obama Turns Singing Sensation On YouTube
By Ian Bush
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — President Obama has his hands full, running for re-election as he runs the country. But a new web video might have him thinking of a career — as a pop star.
Whatever your politics, there’s little doubt the prez can sing.
But when it comes to current catchiest tune — ‘Call Me Maybe’ by Carly Rae Jepsen — will Mr. Obama step up?
He does — on a web video painstakingly spliced from speeches by YouTube mashup sensation BaracksDubs, whose other presidential pop hits have millions of views.
This song has seen spoofs by everyone from Justin Bieber and friends to the well-choreographed Harvard baseball team.
