Buffalo Girl becomes youngest to sing on stage with “The Boss”

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) –  A 3-year-old girl from Cheektowaga spent her Thursday night rocking out with “The Boss.”
Emily Ross got the chance of a lifetime to sing onstage with Bruce Springsteen in front of thousands of people at Met Life Stadium.

Jeff Ross said, “From the moment she was born, I introduced myself and said, “Hi Emily, I’m Dad, then I gave her a quote from “rocky” and then I sang “Waiting On A Sunny Day.”
And since that day its been a nightly tradition for Jeff Ross to sing to his 3-year-old daughter Emily:

Emily Ross said, “It was my first concert.”
Ross and his wife Stacey, couldn’t decide whether it was terrible parenting to take Emily to a show with 55 thousand people.

Ross said, “A few days before the concert she said, “Dad, I’d like to go onstage and sing with Bruce, maybe he’ll pick me up! So I said, “Okay we’re going to take this chance.”

So they went to the Boss’s hometown to catch the show at Met-life stadium. She held up a sign during the concert. It read, “Sunny Day, Can I sing with you?”
That sign and this little girl, caught the eye of “The Boss.”

Ross said, “He took her hand and he was singing a song called, “Sherrie Darling,” right into Emily’s eyes. Emily was looking at him singing right back.”

When Emily was pulled on stage, Springsteen told the audience she is the youngest person to ever perform on stage with him. But For Emily, singing in front of thousands was no big deal. She said she likes singing in front of all of those people.

For her parents, well, they’re just proud. Jeff Ross said, “I still get teary eyed every time I watch the video. I’m so proud of her, she did such an awesome job.”
