Big thanks to TPM for finding these YouTubes of the Crooner in Chief vocalizing, right in public and everything:

You sorta knew that Barack Obama had a level of confidence that was special. As US Senator, at a democratic rally in East Orange, NJ. He recognized Dionne Warwick and sang one of her songs. She was delighted as well as those in attendance. Senator Obama also gave a tip to the young men.
Paddy posted President Obama’s Al Green impression here. Not bad!
