A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity came around a second time for Australian teen Nathan Testa when Bruce Springsteen pulled him on stage to play “Growin’ Up” at a show in Brisbane, Australia, last Thursday. Springsteen, who frequently invites young fans to perform with him during shows, invited Testa onstage once before, when Testa was 11. The two had played “Waitin’ On a Sunny Day” at a show in 2013. This time around, Testa held up a sign that read: “Missed school. In the shit now. Can I play ‘Growin’ Up’ with you?” Springsteen noticed and asked if he knew the song on guitar. He did.
Here’s hoping we all see better days like this kid. Watch both videos ahead.
