Russian 'Idol' Vladimir Putin sings 'Blueberry Hill' for charity

Russian Prime minister often does tough guy media stunts such as harpooning a whale and fighting Russian wildfires, but lately he has been showing his softer side.

Last week he introduced the world to his new dog 'Buffy' and was recently caught on camera, singing the classic tune “Blueberry Hill” at a children’s charity in St. Petersburg

Putin's performance drew rapt attention from the audience (especially the guy at 1:34) and the celebrity filled crowd gave him a standing ovation at the end.
