During the just-completed Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Conference (APEC) in Bali, Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono managed to grab a guitar and serenade Russian President Vladimir Putin on his 61st birthday.
Moved by the musical tribute from the Indonesian President who has several musical CDs to his credit, Putin expressed his surprise and thanked Yudhoyono during the impromptu celebration on Monday, October 7, 2013.
Strumming a guitar, President Yudhoyono invited the world leaders gathered at APEC
to join him in singing “Happy Birthday
” for Putin. The Indonesian President said: “I received the report from intelligence late. As soon as you landed, I began searching for a guitar so I could sing ‘Happy Birthday.’”
