As if getting candy from President Barack Obama isn’t epic enough, one trick-or-treater basically won Halloween when he got a little more than candy from the commander in chief: a performance. 

On Monday, a little boy who totally nailed his Prince costume was given a brief serenade of “Purple Rain” by the president while trick-or-treating at The White House. The boy’s uncle, Gary Williams, shared the moment on Twitter along with the caption, “When @BarackObama sees your nephew dressed as Prince & starts singing Purple Rain! Unreal! Thank you @POTUS & @MichelleObama!”

 Williams also tweeted a few photos of Baby Prince and other children trick-or-treating with the president and First Lady Michelle Obama.
