Did President Obama miss a musical calling?

It was only last month that the commander-in-chief channeled Al Green at Harlem's Apollo Theater. On Tuesday night, he shared the stage with no less than Mick Jagger, B.B. King and Jeff Beck.

The all-star musical lineup performed in the East Room of the White House, with the President joining in for an ensemble rendition of his hometown anthem "Sweet Home Chicago," news footage from the gathering shows.

The full version of In Performance at the White House: Red, White and Blues will air on local PBS stations on Monday, Feb. 27, at 9 p.m. ET.
