You learn something new every day ...

And today, we've learnt that Simon Bridges can actually sing!

The National Party leader is currently going viral after he stunned party supporters with an impressive cover of Elvis' 1956 hit, 'Love Me Tender'.

Taking to the stage at a "Pinoys Go National" event in Tauranga over the weekend, Bridges received plenty of whoops and whistles from the crowd as he belted out the King of Rock and Roll's classic song.

And the 42-year-old even signed off his performance with a loud "thank you very much!" in his best Elvis voice.

Bridges later revealed his love of music started back at school where he was a keen drummer and even performed in events such as Rockquest NZ.
