AceShowbiz - %cJon Bon Jovi% perhaps was just planning to spend a chill afternoon with his friends during a private wedding in Miami last weekend. He reluctantly joined a band who launched into %cBon Jovi%'s 1986 classic "Livin' on a Prayer".
The band was performing the song when the lead singer Lourdes Valentin walked towards Jon and led the guests to sing along with her. Jon then sheepishly took the microphone from Lourdes and halfheartedly sang along. He sang a verse before a trumpet player sailed in with a super-smooth solo.
Lourdes tells The Associated Press that she knew Jon would be a guest at the wedding and she prepared the song specifically for him. According to the wedding singer, the 54-year-old singer told her before the party that he didn't want to sing. She was "very surprised" when he decided to "grace us with his talent."
Bon Jovi just finished their 14th studio album "This House Is Not for Sale", which will be released later this year followed by a world tour. Jon will have a private concert on July 28 at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in Manhattan as part of a "Runaway Tours" package.
