Like Michelle Obama Sings Backup For Bruce Springsteen On His “Glory Days”
Michelle Obama has got some mean vocal chords and she’s not afraid to use it. The 59-year-old former First Lady and bestselling author joined Springsteen onstage during his Springsteen and E Street Band tour stop at the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys in Spain on Friday night.
In a widely circulated video, Obama could be seen having a great time rocking the tambourine and singing backing vocals during a performance of “Glory Days.” She was joined by actress Kate Capshaw and Springsteen’s wife and bandmate Patti Scialfa.
Insider reported that her husband Brack Obama was smiling encouragingly at his wife from the crowd during her surprise appearance. Springsteen followed the surprise performance with other classics like, “Born in the U.S.A.” and “Born to Run.”
Michelle and Barack Obama’s attendance at the show came after they were spotted having a meal at the Palace Hotel’s Amar fish food restaurant the night before with Springsteen. The couple was also pictured enjoying the sights around Barcelona and visiting the Moco Museum.
Barack Obama And Bruce Springsteen’s Long-standing Relationship
Obama and the rockstar have been friends for many years. In 2021, he and Barack, 61, released their RENEGADES: Born in the USA podcast along with a coinciding book.
“I always say when I first met Bruce he kind of seems like surprisingly shy, considering he goes out there and sings before tens of thousands of people for hours at a time,” Barack told CBS Sunday Mornings at the time.
He continued: “And we just ended up being in settings where we had these long conversations and I thought the things we’re talking about — what does it mean to be a man, what does it mean to be an American? These were things that were just kind of popping up over a meal … and I thought, You know what? This might be something that would be useful for folks to hear.”
