What a good boy: Jack White sings “Happy Birthday” to his mom onstage in Poland

During a show in Warsaw, Poland, Jack White brought his mom, Teresa Gillis onstage and had the crowd serenade her with “Sto lat,” the Polish equivalent of “Happy Birthday.” Mama Gillis is 88.

There’s no video of the event because of Jack’s no phone policy at his gigs. But there is this official photograph.

If you want to know what they were singing, take a look at this.
