Local kid shares stage with Springsteen

Jake Segal with the Boss in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.

Jake Segal, 11, of Lafayette Hill, has an uncanny knack for meeting Bruce Springsteen.

Last year in Hershey, Springsteen reached out into the crowd and held Jake's hand while singing "Spirit in the Night," and at one of the Spectrum shows, Springsteen jumped in the crowd, handed Jake the microphone, and let him sing the chorus of “Waiting on a Sunny Day," as Bruce often does with young fans.

Jake reprised the "Waiting" act Tuesday 8/25 in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.

Springsteen plucked Jake out of the audience, handed him the microphone, and allowed him to sing not only the chorus but a whole verse while Springsteen danced next to him and the band played behind him.
