Watch Obama's World Bank Pick Sing 'Time of My Life'

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."
