Motown came calling to the White House on Friday.
Members of the Temptations and the Four Tops dropped by to see President Barack Obama while on a White House holiday tour.
A video of the men surprising fellow visitors to the White House was released with some impromptu singing in the East Room.
Last week, Obama joked that he nominated Ashton Carter as defence secretary in part because he is such a big Motown fan.
