Jamie Foxx gets surprise birthday treat

New York: Actor Jamie Foxx was treated to a birthday surprise by his relatives and friends earlier this week.

Foxx turned 45 Dec 13.

Following an appearance on "The Late Show With David Letterman", the actor went to a restaurant named Mr. Chow with a friend, but no one was there. The friend then told him he needed to pick someone up at a bowling alley, and Foxx dejectedly went along. But instead they wound up at the General, a Lower East Side restaurant set to open in January, where, to Foxx`s surprise, 25 of his friends and relatives were waiting, reports nypost.com.

Jazz pianist Eric Lewis, a.k.a. ELEW, led the entire group in singing "Happy Birthday" for Foxx.
