Denyce Graves and President Obama Bring Down the House

Over the weekend, Senator Ted Kennedy celebrated his 77th birthday at the Kennedy Center.

Singing "Happy Birthday" to him was Aria Serious friend mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves, mezzo-soprano Frederica Von Stade, folk singer James Taylor and America's newest baritone, President Barack Obama.

One thing is for certain, he sure sings with enthusiasm.

But you can tell he's new at this whole opera thing because he broke the golden rule: never, ever, stand in front of the soprano.

Not even if you're the Prez.
