There's something special about a friend calling you up at midnight to serenade you with a birthday tune – but what about when that friend is Jennifer Garner, and she can play the sax?
Jennifer gave her fans a fun look into one of her hidden talents on Thursday when she posted a video on Instagram showing off her saxophone skills, giving us all major #ThrowbackThursday memories to high school band years. The post's caption indicated that she was playing the "Happy Birthday" song in honor of her longtime gal-pal Reese Witherspoon, who turns 42 on March 22. See the fun moment from Jennifer below:
The Texas-born, West Virginia-raised actress marched into the frame in full uniform – plumed hat, gloves, and spats included – turned on her heels, and raised her instrument. And, of course, she tooted out a charming rendition of the classic birthday tune. She even included a soulful "And many more....." riff at the end of her solo. With a smile to the camera, she turned and marched away.
