Latin pop singer Prince Royce sang “Happy Birthday” to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Tuesday during her appearance on Univision’s Spanish-language talk show El Gordo Y La Flaca.
Clinton, who turned 69 on Wednesday, was also treated to a performance by a full mariachi band during her appearance on the program.
“What gets better than this? I get Prince Royce to give me a hug, I get a mariachi band to play for me and I get to be here with you guys. It doesn’t get any better than this” Clinton said, according to Billboard, in a Facebook Live video that has been deleted.
Prince Royce has guest starred this season on Hulu’s TV drama East Los High to encourage Hispanic millennials to vote in the upcoming election. After singing “Happy Birthday,” the Latin chart-topping singer formally endorsed Clinton’s candidacy.
“I want to motivate everyone to go out and I want Hillary to know that she has my support and that I love her very much,” he said Tuesday.
Royce also shared a selfie of himself alongside Clinton with his 6 million Twitter followers.

Before the end of the show, Clinton told the studio audience about an upcoming free Clinton campaign concert being held on Saturday at Bayfront Park in Miami, which will be headlined by superstars Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez.
Oddly enough, Clinton was serenaded with an impromptu “Happy Birthday” song by a crowd of supporters in Coconut Creek, Florida earlier this week.
