Barack Obama sings the news with Jimmy Fallon. Hey there, I'm Karli Bulnes, the must-see clip and the president's other impromptu performances are all in today's PopSugar Rush. "What we've said is simple, now is not the time to make school more expesive for our young people . . . aww yeah...(cheers)." Jimmy Fallon backed up President Barack Obama as the two took part in one of the late night talk show's regular bits — slow jamming the news. The President put a smooth spin on his student loan stance during the show, which was taped Tuesday at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, but this isn't Barack's first time breaking into song . . . "Walk on By" (2007) "When you see me walking down, walk on by!" Back in 2007, the then-senator sang Dionne Warwick's hit "Walk on By" in front of the singer, who was in the audience at a democratic rally in New Jersey . . . "Chain of Fools" (2008) "Chain chain chain . . . chain of fools" The following year, he took on Aretha Franklin's soulful classic "Chain of Fools" while speaking at a campaign event in Detroit . . . "Lift Every Voice and Sing" (2010) "With every voice that sings..." The president later led a star-studded chorus at a 2010 White House celebration of African American History month . . . "Hey Jude" (2010) "Na na na na, hey Jude . . ." He also joined the Jonas brothers, wife Michelle, and daughters Sasha and Malia to belt out "Hey Jude" alongside Paul McCartney in 2010 . . . "Let's Stay Together" (2012) "I . . . so in love with you . . ." Of course there was this quick clip of the president showing off his pipes by reciting the opening line of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" while at a fundraiser at the Apollo theater in January that immediately went viral . . . "Sweet Home Chicago" (2012) "I heard you sing Al Green now you done started something you got to keep it up now!" Then the next month, blues legends Buddy Guy and BB King convinced the pres to accompany them on "Sweet Home Chicago." "Come on, baby don't you want to go."/"Sweet home Chicago!" As if all those awesome performances weren't enough, the President's rock star status is even further solidified by the fact that he's on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, which hits newsstands on Friday. I'm Karli Bulnes and thanks for watching PopSugar Rush!
