Meet the Buffett Trio: Warren, Peter and Akon

Warren Buffett took a break recently from making multi-billion dollar investments in American business icons to play the ukulele with two musicians who, unlike the Omaha billionaire, actually make a living as professional musicians.

Celebrating the release of his new CD, “Imaginary Kingdom” (BeSide Records, September 23, 2008 ), musician/philanthropist Peter Buffett was joined by his father, Warren Buffett at Peter’s Concert & Conversation at the Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles (Friday, October 3). Ukulele in hand, the jovial elder Buffett stepped out onstage to join his son in a spirited rendition of “Ain’t She Sweet.” Joining them onstage for the second verse was multi-platinum artist/producer Akon, doing human beat

Warren's son, Peter, has a new CD out called Imaginary Kingdom. During an appearance on October 3 at the Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles, Peter was joined onstage by his father for what's described as a "spirited rendition" of the 1927 smash hit Ain't She Sweet.

The third member of the trio, Akon, joined them for the second verse, doing human beatbox accompaniment.

Akon, the internationally famous singer and producer, teamed up last June with Peter to launch a "musical collaberation" and a social action website called IsThereSomethingICanDo.com.

It includes a music video and MP3 download of Peter and Akon doing a version of Peter's song Anything from his 2007 Staring at the SunCD.)
