Jesse Tyler Ferguson serenaded by gay choir

Eric Stonestreet ensured his Modern Family co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson had a birthday to remember on Monday (22Oct12) - by hiring an all-gay choir to serenade him.

The actors, who play a same-sex couple on the hit comedy, teamed up for a question-and-answer session for fans at the Wilbur Theater in Boston, Massachusetts on Jesse Tyler Ferguson's 37th birthday.

Eric Stonestreet decided to add some camp flair to the evening - he invited the Boston Gay Men's Chorus onstage to sing for his pal's big day.

The duo was wrapping up their show when the choir was unveiled from behind a curtain to sing Happy Birthday to Jesse Tyler Ferguson as he was presented with a birthday cake.

The blushing actor then picked up a microphone to join with the singers after they burst into a rendition of Katy Perry's hit Firework while Eric Stonestreet danced along.
