Singing with Jon Bon Jovi
"My journey to Barcelona, Spain all started because of my client, Mira, who invited me to come along with her on her trip. I am her personal assistant. Her favorite band is Bon Jovi and I always shared her passion for Jon. When I found out they were having a Live Band Karaoke contest I got really excited and sent in my audition video. It has always been my dream to become a singer. Mira and I both share a love for music; it connected us. When I found out I got selected to sing with Kings of Suburbia, I was very excited and felt so honored. On the day I got to sing with Jon, Jon told the audience he needed a real singer. He then started pointing at me and said, “Come on up! This is a daunting task, not for the faint of heart.”
The moment I started walking up the steps to the stage it felt like a dream, like I was in a movie. When I saw Jon I just froze and was star struck. Never in my life have I ever sung with a rock star, let alone to 2,500 people unprepared. I just said to myself, “here is my chance,” and to give it my best. I have always loved Jon and followed his music, but I never thought I would ever get the chance to sing with him. This was a once in a lifetime experience that I will be forever grateful for. He inspired me to follow my dream, which of course is singing.
