Today marks a milestone for Diane Sawyer: it’s her 65th birthday.

No word from the network about the anchor’s plans for celebrating today, but Sawyer sure got a birthday surprise a few days in advance. Last Friday, during what seemed to be another routine day at ABC News, Sawyer was more than a little surprised when her colleagues burst into a song and dance in tribute.

It’s fair to say you may never listen to “Say a Little Prayer” the same way again. George Stephanopoulos served champagne. Brian Ross sported a tux and top hat. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs made a cameo. And correspondents, editors, graphic artists, producers, and writers at bureaus worldwide sang along.
