The only way to make great music last is to introduce it to a younger generation.
A 4-year-old showed us just how passionate some parents are to pass on their musical taste to their kids when she was chosen to climb up on stage with the legendary Bruce Springsteen for a little duet.
And she rocked it!
Right place, right time
Little Nevaeh was in the front row at the Springsteen concert in Los Angeles almost a decade ago when The Boss spotted her.
She was singing along to his hit song with his E Street Band, “Waitin’ on a Sunny Day.” It’s a popular song for the audience to sing along to at concerts, but it’s still rare to see someone so young rocking out to it.
That’s probably why he asked her to come up on stage with him.
The band is all smiles as they see the little girl come up to sing. And there’s no denying that it’s pretty adorable.
Since her grandparents uploaded the video, it’s been viewed over 3.7 million times!
“awwwww she’s sooo precious and if you watch the video again look at the drummer and guitar players they knew soon as he looked at the girl what was up the smiles on everyone’s faces…and the tenderness shown by bruce….this…is..a priceless moment,” said a fan.
Navaeh is wearing earplugs to protect her little eardrums from too much noise, but she can still sing along.
And don’t worry – he appears to have asked for her family’s permission first before bringing her up.
A star is born
As Navaeh sits down beside him, Springsteen raises a finger and the band stops to pare down the song so we can better hear her little voice.
This little girl is not afraid to sing. She’s not exactly lapping up the attention, but she seems to be enjoying herself as people cheer her on.
The Boss is clearly getting a kick out of it all. He looks at his band and then back to the audience as if to say, “Look at this kid!”
When she finishes, he says, “I’m mystified! You’re so good!”
And when the song is over, the duo takes a bow – three of them in fact, since the audience won’t stop cheering.
Before he picks her up and takes her back to her family, he lets the 4-year-old to announce the next song, which she does with gusto.
Springsteen dubbed Navaeh the “youngest member of the E Street Band, ever.”
The beat goes on
It turns out that Springsteen took any chance he got to pull a kiddo up on stage during his tour when the band performed “Waitin’ on a Sunny Day.”
It’s an adorable tradition, and we bet Naveah is still the youngest kid to duet with him on stage life!
