Weddings are beautiful celebrations of love and commitment where family and friends get together for a couple’s big day.
The food tastes great, and everyone is dressed up, happy, and flashing their smiles. On top of all that, when a wedding singer gives a great performance they can keep the crowd singing and dancing until the morning.
And that’s exactly what happened with this impromptu Bon Jovi performance.
During a private wedding reception in Key Biscayne, Florida, Bon Jovi performed “Livin’ On a Prayer” with Lourdes Valentin and it was phenomenal.
A wedding has to be pretty incredible if it can get a legend like this to perform one of his biggest hits!
“Livin’ on a Prayer” has had major success over the years.
The hit song from Bon Jovi’s third album Slippery When Wet was selected by online voters as the number one on VH1’s list of The 100 Greatest Songs of the ‘80s. It’s only natural that such a beloved song would appear on a wedding mix, and jazz singer and songwriter Valentin did not disappoint either! When guests heard the familiar sound of the popular tune, all eyes were on Bon Jovi. The singer even invited him a few times, saying, “Come on Jon!”
Bon Jovi, who came to the wedding accompanied by his wife, resisted at first.
Eventually, he couldn’t hold out any longer and came to the stage about one minute into the song.
Though he came as a guest, he left as a superstar!
Bon Jovi can be seen sporting his gray hair with style.
Aging has got nothing on him, as he was as full of energy as always. This man has an undeniable charisma, and the guests felt it. Valentin did a great job and her jazz version of the song was excellent, but the real party started after her duet with Bon Jovi. All the guests stood up and started singing, cheering Bon Jovi as he grabbed the mic and joined in. The switch that happened is indescribable but is sure to fill you with joy. The impromptu duet turned out to be the best thing that happened to a happy couple that day.
Could this couple have been any luckier?
They are close friends with Bon Jovi—close enough to invite him to their wedding and get a song by him!
It all turned out beautifully, and we congratulate Valentin for her courage to be persistent in bringing him to a stage. Bon Jovi is a class act.
The founder and frontman of the Grammy Award-winning rock band Bon Jovi was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2009.
He has achieved a lot in his life but he still came as a humble friend to this wedding and wanted to enjoy it surrounded by close friends. We must admit that a jazz version of this song sounds amazing, but Bon Jovi made it even better. Still, could you expect any less from a song that has one of the best key changes in rock history?
Since it was posted, the video got more than 10 million views.
Jon Bon Jovi will always have all that it takes to put on an amazing show.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if every wedding could have five minutes of a live performance by any music legend? Here’s hoping that we make some famous friends who are rock stars.
