Dule Hill gets a 'West Wing' moment with Obama

By

NEW YORK (AP) — Few people get to meet a U.S. president, but Dule Hill has met three — one fake and now his second real one.

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

Hill and cast members of the upcoming Broadway show "After Midnight," a musical celebrating Duke Ellington's years at the Cotton Club nightclub, sang a few numbers at the Waldorf Astoria hotel.

Hill says he "really enjoyed it" and "never thought this would ever happen."

It's Hill's third close encounter with a commander in chief. He met Jimmy Carter a few years ago.
