Paul McCartney made a young fan’s dream come true during his One on One tour stop in Argentina last night, but he can’t take all of the credit. When the Beatle invited 10-year-old Leila to come on stage, his intentions were to sign her stuffed monkey. However, when he asked her if she’d like him to sign it, Leila listened to her mini-rockstar gut and decided to tell Macca what she really wanted.
“I want to play the bass with you,” she said into the lowered microphone. When Paul asked if she had her bass with her, she said “no,” and pointed to his band’s instruments. “I didn’t see this one coming,” a delighted McCartney said to the crowd.
Leila got what she wished for and then some after a roadie set her up with an extremely low-hanging bass. After strumming along to the first verse of “Get Back” with McCartney, he lowered his mic so she could join him on vocals for the chorus. Watch the touching moment below!
