Always know the person’s name before you start the song.

According to a report from The New York Post, President Biden went down in flames while tyring to sing “Happy Birthday” to 49-year-old Arndrea Waters King, daughter-in-law of Martin Luther King Jr., during an event organized by Al Sharpton’s National Action Network and co-chaired by Martin Luther King III.

From The New York Post:

“Martin the Third, we celebrate a legacy of your beloved father and mother. They worked for the beloved community. But congratulations today to the honorees including your wife, who I understand it’s her birthday today?” Biden said.

“Well look, my wife has a rule in her family, when it’s someone’s birthday, you sing ‘Happy Birthday.’ You ready?” the president went on before launching into song.

Joe then sings the tune while totally forgetting the woman’s name; “Happy birthday, dear Valz-dvit,” Biden ultimately uttered.
