Greensboro resident Tom Logan is a huge fan of jazz music, including anything from the old days of Frank Sinatra to the modern era of Michael Bublé.
Jazz is something he likes to listen and sing along to while driving his kids to school or just relaxing at home.
“I’ve been a big fan of that sort of genre since I was in college,” Logan said. “Sinatra, Dean Martin and Bobby Darin are some of my favorites, but they’re all gone now. So, when [Michael] Bublé came on to the scene, it helped preserve their legacy. He breathed a bit of fresh air into the genre and I took a liking to his music.”
Recently, Logan saw Bublé live at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in nearby Greeneville, South Carolina. He got the chance to take his daughter, Violet, to the concert with him. It was her first time seeing the award-winning artist in person, and it would be an experience that would go viral on Youtube.
“She was super excited about going,” Logan said. “It was an awesome experience to share with her.”
Violet held up a sign during the concert that said ‘Please let my daddy sing’ in honor of Logan’s passion for jazz. Bublé noticed the poster in-between songs and made his way over to the pair, who were sitting close to the stage. Logan asked Bublé if he could sing Violet ‘Daddy’s Little Girl,’ which is a song on his second album, Dream.
“Are you kidding me?” Bublé said in the video. “They [the crowd] don’t know this song, but I like this song, and you’re going to make me cry, dude.”
Bublé slightly broke into tears on stage and told a story about how it’s a song he sings to his three-year-old daughter while putting her to bed. He then invited Violet on stage so Logan could sing the song to her.
“When he did that, I absolutely choked up,” Logan said. “It was an awesome experience seeing her on stage.”
The crowd erupted into cheers as Logan sang “Daddy’s Little Girl” to her. Violet and Bublé were even mouthing the words as he went along.
“It was a song that not a lot of people in the crowd knew about, but he remembered it,” Logan said. “I am so thankful to have shared that moment with my daughter. It was a moment I will cherish forever.”
