Digital sales of Al Green's 1972 hit "Let's Stay Together" are up 490 percent, since a video of the president singing a few bars at a fundraiser surfaced last week.
According to Nielsen SoundScan, the song was downloaded about 16,000 times last week — making it the best week for the song since digital sales data became available in 2003.

American Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe was so impressed with Barack Obama's Al Green rendition that he has invited the president to appear on the Fox series.
