Lady Gaga Surprises Tony Bennett Onstage with a Massive Cake for His 89th Birthday
In the final moments of the unlikely duo’s last show at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., Gaga surprised the jazz crooner with a special serenade and cake to honor his upcoming 89th birthday.
Gaga sang Duke Ellington’s “I’m Beginning To See The Light” to a beaming Bennett as the sold out audience cheered. The 29-year-old then led the crowd in singing “Happy Birthday” to the New York City native.
The cake, created by Duff Goldman‘s Charm City Cakes, of Food Network fame, towered over both Gaga and Bennett. The multi-tiered dessert was a recreation of the cake originally created for President John F. Kennedy s birthday at which Marilyn Monroe famously sang “Happy Birthday Mr. President.”

The “Bad Romance” singer shared a close up of the sugar confection’s impressive detailing on Instagram.
Edible versions of both singers and their pets topped the white masterpiece.
“Look at the details on this cake,” Gaga wrote. “@missasiakinney and Happy made it too!”
Gaga also retweeted a fan-captured video of the birthday performance to her millions of Twitter followers.
The August 1 concert marked the end of the duo’s lengthy seven-month tour, which took Gaga and Bennett to Spain, Italy, Denmark and Monaco, among other places.
The pair still has one last Cheek to Cheek moment to look forward to: they just received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Variety Special for their PBS special.
