Hey Gayle King. Call him, maybe?
Colin Powell stopped by CBS This Morning Wednesday morning to talk politics with the show's anchors, Gayle King and Charlie Rose -- and, in the process, proved that love for the summer's #1 song knows no party lines. (Recently, President Barack Obama "sang" the tune as well, thanks to an enterprising YouTube user's video mashup.)
As cameras rolled during a commercial break, the former Secretary of State launched into the chorus of Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" with an enthusiastic King. (Rose decided he'd sit the karaoke session out.)
Last month, Jepsen, 26, opened up to Us Weekly about her song's massive -- and totally unexpected -- success.
The former Canadian Idol competitor says her tune took on a life of its own when fellow Canadian Justin Bieber tweeted that he was a fan of the single.
"I got a hysterical phone call from my little sister," Jepsen told Us of first hearing about Bieber's message. "I went and checked the [Twitter] account, and sure enough it was his verified account! It was so random and wonderful and I was like, I don't know where this came from, but it's great!"
