Watch Obama's World Bank Pick Sing 'Time of My Life'
CNBC.com | March 23, 2012 | 03:06 PM EDT

By now you already know that President Obama has nominated Dartmouth College President Jim Yong Kim to head the World Bank. It's a surprise move because Kim is cut from a different cloth than the typical World Bank head.

He's a physician and development expert instead of a banker, career politician or a chief executive.

And, also, he's a rapper.

Here he is performing "Time of My Life" during the finals of last year's "Dartmouth Idol."
