Budget Secretary Florencio “Butch” Abad, Public Works Secretary Rogelio “Babes” Singson, and Cabinet Secretary Jose Rene Almendras surprised everyone in the crowd, especially United States President Barack Obama, when they belted out the Marvin Gaye classic, “What’s Going On” during the state dinner on Monday, April 28.
 
In a video posted by Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima on his Facebook page, the three can be heard singing Obama’s favorite song.
 

 
The three ranking government officials literally brought the house down since the performance was not even in the official program.
 
Several of Aquino’s Cabinet men also earlier posted “selfies” during Obama’s visit in Malacanang.
 
Apl. de. App, Kuh Ledesma, Bituin Escalante, Leo Valdez, Madrigal Singers and Bayanihan Dancers were just some of the top-caliber performers who entertained the guest of honor, the host, and government dignitaries.
