Obama sings TV theme tune

from CNN.com – Top Stories http://ift.tt/1JpntkD

Washington (CNN)President Barack Obama once more showed off his singing skills Thursday in New Orleans while he was touring a neighborhood devastated by Hurricane Katrina 10 years ago.

Obama was walking through the neighborhood of Treme, a historic, predominantly black area that experienced significant flooding because of the storm. He was in town to mark the anniversary of Katrina and highlight the area’s resilience and growth.

As he was visiting with residents of the neighborhood, Obama met a woman who called herself "Wheezy." Obama asked if it was "Wheezy" as in the classic sitcom "Sanford and Son," though the small crowd corrected him that it was a character on "The Jeffersons," instead.

Obama then sang a few bars of the seminal show’s theme song, "Movin’ on Up," laughing with the woman.
