After shooting down accusations that she lip syncs during her concerts, Britney Spears continued to prove her point by performing an a capella version of “Happy Birthday”.
During a concert in Singapore, Spears, 35, belted out the classic birthday anthem. “I have a really special friend tonight. He’s been with me, I’m gonna cry, for like five years,” Spears said.
“He’s one of my favorite people. His name is Jacob. Everyone, let’s sing ‘Happy Birthday’!” the singer declared before the performance.
According to People, the a capella rendition was to celebrate the birthday of Spears’ bodyguard, Jacob, and what a treat he got. One of her dancers even had a cake and candles ready for the big occasion.
Spears recently spoke out about being accused of lip syncing. “It’s really funny. A lot of people think I don’t sing live, because I’m dancing so much, I do have a little bit of playback, but there’s a mixture of my voice and the playback,” Spears revealed.
“It really pisses me off because I’m busting my a** out there and singing at the same time and nobody ever gives me credit for it, you know?” she continued.
