Jon Bon Jovi joins wedding band for Livin' on a Prayer


Jon Bon Jovi was a reluctant singer at a Florida wedding.

Videos show the rocker sheepishly taking the microphone after a wedding band led by singer Lourdes Valentin launched into Bon Jovi's 1986 classic, Livin' on a Prayer.

Jon opted for a smoother delivery of the song to match the jazz quintet.

A trumpet player added a solo to fill in for the rock anthem's missing electric guitar riff.

Lourdes told AP she knew Jon would be a guest at the wedding and she prepared the song specifically for him.

She says he told her before the party that he didn't think he wanted to sing, and she was "very surprised" when he decided to "grace us with his talent".
