World Leader All-Star Band

Recently, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin performed the classic Fats Domino tune “Blueberry Hill” live. You can check out footage from the event here. This got me thinking, what if an all-star band of world leaders past and present who played music instruments was gathered together?

Let’s start this off right, on Vocals:
