Reporter sings Happy Birthday to Angela Merkel

Published: Updated:


German Chancellor Angela Merkel received an unusual birthday present on Thursday when a reporter serenaded her with the traditional Happy Birthday song during a press conference in Brussels.

"Maybe it would have gone better if I'd sung along,” Merkel, who turned 60, replied to the reporter, after he apparently failed to get other journalists sing with him.

“Thank you, thank you. This is the first Happy Birthday that has been sung to me for my birthday today,” Merkel added.
