Gotta Watch: So you think you can sing?

Aerosmith's Steven Tyler is a singer, although some might dispute that label, given his performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner" at Sunday's Patriots-Ravens game. In the last few days, we've heard from a few famous folks who do not have "singer" on their resume, yet they thought enough of themselves to give it a go. Today's Gotta Watch: So you think you can sing?

Amateur night at the Apollo - The White House liked President Obama's recent musical homage to the Rev. Al Green so much, they've made it into a ringtone. [cnn-video url=""%5D

Buffett the entertainer - At first glance, the curiosity factor is pretty high on this one: Warren Buffett, strumming a ukulele, singing "I've Been Working on the Railroad" on state-run Chinese television. The video of his contribution to a Chinese New Year variety show was posted on CCTV's Spring Festival Gala website. [cnn-video url=""%5D

Herman Cain believes in himself - Former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain has sung before the National Press Club. He's even delivered an odd ode to pizza, which was an Internet favorite. Friday, the sometime gospel vocalist was at it again, belting out a bit of Diana Ross' "Believe in Yourself" at a South Carolina rally with Stephen Colbert. [cnn-video url=""%5D

    I like Obama laying down a little soul. He doesn't try to do too much – just enough to excite the crowd, which was the point.

      I shloud win:I shloud win because I JUST got an iPhone and am deathly afraid of scratching it. I know I'll burst into tears at the sign of a microscopic scratch.. so this case would help postpone the tragedy and a face full of mascara.Ruby's View in four words:-authentic-addictive-eloquent-original

    @che neither does your president.If you didnt notice he had the first pew in a racist church for 20yrs. And then when anybody tries to talk sense to you.the typical respose is oh you dont like him because of his skin color.Well all yall are wrong,he has as much white in him as black plus he was raised by white grandarents,so actually he has more white in him than black.So knock it off with the your racist remark.IT JUST SHOWS HOW RACIST YOU ARE!

      Well the fact that you blatantly think there is a difference between black and white by your comment "He is more white then black" shows how racist you are! There are no differences between black and white, black simply have more melanin in their skin and white don't have as much melanin (Which is why they turn red when they go in the sun) THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE, so stop making differences

      Was this not the same problem Germany had in the 1930 s? Austrians do not rnespreet Germans anymore than a Kenyan can rnespreet an AMerican. Let's just say it would go a long way in explaining why this man has such obvious disdain for the USA.[] Reply:July 25th, 2009 at 9:06 PMThanks for the feedback.

    if all that multiple robot mmasping went into building good quality relationships between people, I think that it would be interesting to analyse the data of the results of both and see where the most value lies.Things are changing and value, information, ethics and recommendations are going to be the new way' in my opinion. The other ways of thinking are what got us into the current financial. environmental and human rights situation we are now in.I applaud twitter for the job they have done so far of keeping the play clean!
