NEW YORK - President Barack Obama held a fundraiser Thursday night at the historic Apollo Theater in Harlem.

“I…I’m…soooo in love with you,” Mr. Obama sang.
The song was a message to the crowd of “Let’s stay together.” They went absolutely crazy with loud cheers. Later, Mr. Obama showed more appreciated for soul singer Rev. Al Green.
"Don't worry Rev, I cannot sing like you, but I just wanted to show my appreciation,” the president said.
