What would you do if one of your musical idols invited you to the stage to perform one of his songs? That is exactly what happened to Rayna Ford, a fan from Newfoundland who attended Paul Simon's performance in Toronto, Canada on May 7, 2011.
Ford called out from the audience for Simon to play his song "Duncan" saying something to the effect that she had learned how to play guitar on that song. In a moment of pure spontaneity, Paul Simon called her to the stage, handed her a guitar, and let her perform the song herself. [source NPR].
What a fantastic, indelible life experience for Rayna, and what a moment of magnanimous music making for the Grammy-award-winning music icon.
