James Brown Jams with Finland President

When James Brown was winding down his show at a jazz festival yesterday (July 17) in Helsinki, the crowds clapped to the beat of his 1970s hit “Sex Machine,” then roared with approval when Finland’s popular president Tarja Halonen walked on stage to jive with the Godfather of Soul.

An enthusiastic audience chanted “Tarja, Tarja, Tarja,” in the balmy, bright summer evening in Pori, on the southwestern coast of Finland, wrapped in a rare heat wave. Halonen, 59, let her hair down and visibly enjoyed dancing with 70-year-old Brown at one of Finland’s oldest music festivals.
