4-Year-old sings at Springsteen concert – becomes ‘youngest member of the E Street Band’

February 6th, 2020

Concerts are a great way to get your mind off of your troubles and have some fun!

Oftentimes when there is a concert in our mist, days seem to drag on slowly. Seeing one of your favorite musicians is always something to look forward to. No matter how old we get, it never gets old.

What’s so refreshing about going to shows is seeing all of the young faces in the audience. There is something so cool about seeing the younger generation of kids enjoying the experience just as much as you do as an adult.

Besides, don’t they remind you of someone you once knew? Talk about a trip down memory lane.

One lucky little girl got the opportunity of a lifetime when she was able to see Bruce Springsteen live in concert. But she wasn’t just anywhere in the venue. She was in the front row!

Of course, it didn’t take long for Bruce to notice the 4-year-old singing the lyrics to the hit song with his E Street Band, “Waitin’ on a Sunny Day.”

The girl’s name is Nevaeh and she is a big fan of Bruce. Her love for the singer might have begun under the influence of her parents but if so, she seems to have developed a genuine love for the influential artist that is all her own.

The video begins with Bruce and the E Street Band performing the song with the audience singing along. He works his way around the stage, engaging with as many audience members as he can. Neveah and her family seem content dancing and signing in the front row.

Navaeh can be seen bouncing up and down to the music as the person recording captures the back of her head between moments of the band members.

Don’t worry folks, she’s wearing earplugs!

As Bruce gets closer to Navaeh and her family, he stops and picks up a sign from a fan in the crowd. Though we can’t read what it says, we know that it was good enough to capture his attention in the middle of his song.

After briefly singing to someone in the audience he walks over to where Navaeh is. He looks down a moment and sings before heading further down the stage. Though brief, the family is thrilled to have captured his attention, if even for a moment.

But Bruce isn’t finished with them yet!

He comes back and points to Navaeh. He mouths something to her family to which they respond. He quickly invites the little girl up on stage. He sits down and invites Navaeh to sit down beside him.

And with a point of his finger, the band breaks down into a stripped-down version of the song.

Without hesitation, Navaeh begins to sing. The crowd loves it. They cheer and clap for the young but determined little girl.

Bruce himself gets a kick out of her. He can’t help but look excitedly at his band as if to say, “Look at this kid!”

He even looks in awe at the camera as she starts singing the chorus again. Bruce lets her sing it three times!

When she finishes, he says, “I’m mystified! You’re so good!”

He takes her hand and suggests they take a bow. They bow three times and each time they do, the crowd cheers just as loudly as before.

But before he picks her up and takes her back to her family, he allows her to announce bringing the beat back. She does it like a pro and the band starts up again.

If that wasn’t enough, Bruce dubbed Navaeh as the “youngest member of the E Street Band, ever.”

What an experience! I bet we all wish to have a moment like Navaeh regardless of what age we are!
