Taylor Swift got THE sweetest rendition of Happy Birthday from the legend that is Aretha Franklin.

The pair were at the 2014 Women In Music event with honorees Jessie J, Ariana Grande, Idina Menzel along with TayTay and Aretha.

Yes, with just hours to go before Swifty turned 25 the Queen of Soul personally sung to her. Lucky sod.

After having over a million copies of 1989 in its debut week it’s definitely a high point for but having Aretha sing to you for your birthday has got to top that and be the BEST THING EVER.

Earlier that afternoon, during Swifty's acceptance speech for the Woman of the Year honor, Swift made the audience suffer through an intentionally terrible joke.

Taylor said: "I turn 25 at midnight tonight.

"And I fully intend on partying like it's 1989." After being met with polite chuckles and groans, Swift admitted, "I knew it would be a bad joke when I wrote it, but I did it anyway."
