‘West Wing’ actor sings at UN party

– Few people get to meet a U.S. president. Dulé Hill has met four – one fake and three real ones. And now he’s gotten to strut his stuff in front of a sitting one.

The actor and dancer, who played a personal presidential aide on “The West Wing,” got a chance to perform a song for hundreds of world leaders, including President Barack Obama, on Monday night during a reception for U.N. leaders.

Hill and cast members of the upcoming Broadway musical “After Midnight,” a musical celebrating Duke Ellington’s years at the famous Cotton Club nightclub in Harlem, sang a few numbers at the Waldorf Astoria, a swanky Park Avenue hotel. Hill sang “I’ve Got the World on a String,” and other cast members sang the songs “Devil and the Deep Blue Sea” and “Creole Love Call.”

“I really enjoyed it,” Hill said afterward. “I never thought this would ever happen. If you’d have told me I was going to sing in front of all these dignitaries a month ago I would have laughed.”
