Warren Buffett sings for Chinese New Year gala

warren-buffett-getty.jpgSo, this is kind of weird, but also cool. Billionaire investor and philanthropist Warren Buffett is singing and playing guitar for a Chinese gala that will be broadcast on the internet Jan. 23 for the Lunar New Year of the Dragon, Chinese press announced Thursday (Jan. 5).

The performance has already been videotaped, but they are staying mum on what song Buffett performs.

"We all know that Buffett is good at investment, but fe knew he also did well in singing," Wang Pingjiu, a production executive for the Spring Festival Web Gala, was quoted as saying.

The gala will be broadcast on CNTV.cn and will also feature film star Jackie Chan.

Interestingly, we thought perhaps Chan and Buffett would both be born in a Year of the Dragon, but that is not the case. They are both Year of the Horse babies.

And just in case you had any doubt about Buffett's ability to rock, we give you this Geico ad where he does his Axl Rose impression.
