Clip of the Day: Conan Sings the Blues With Chicago First Graders

While filming his show in Chicago, Conan O’Brien takes time out to teach the blues to young students.

Most first graders probably have no idea who Conan O’Brien is, but the students of Francis Xavier Ward Elementary in Chicago embraced their six-foot-four redheaded guest this week. As a father of two and an experienced host, it’s no surprise to see the great report Conan has with these kids.

Though the video is mostly a fun diversion from your day, we love seeing someone like Conan using his platform to encourage getting involved in the community and promoting the arts in schools. Do you think Conan would make a good music teacher?

Who was the best music teacher you ever had?
