Springsteen Welcomes Two Fans Up To Sing In Houston

Legendary rocker Bruce Springsteen has always been a man of the people and that trend has continued through this year's High Hopes tour. On Tuesday night in Houston two fans attending their first Springsteen show had the thrill of a lifetime when they sang Born In The U.S.A. gem "No Surrender" with The Boss in Houston.

Our friends at Backstreets share the surreal story, "Twenty-eight-year-old Alex Flores was holding a sign claiming that he 'Busted [his] lil brother out of class to sing with The Boss' and asking, 'Can we sing?' Bruce took the sign and posed, thinking about it for a while before bringing Alex and 16-year-old Tommy on stage with him to center mic. What followed was possibly the most joyous, exuberant version of 'No Surrender' ever, with the Flores brothers nailing every nuance of the song. At their very first Springsteen show, the Flores brothers had a dream come true, and they could not have been more appreciative, not only hugging Bruce, but going around the stage personally thanking every band member individually. The Houston crowd ate it up."

Now, it's not like the fellas asked to sing "Born To Run" or "Thunder Road." The young fans joined Springsteen and the E Street Band for one of just five songs off Born In The U.S.A. that wasn't released as a single. The Boss was clearly impressed with the gents's knowledge of the song and at points let them sing without him. Check out the crazy scene thanks to Dave Meek's fan-shot footage:
