Kelligrews woman wows Paul Simon audience
An eastern Newfoundland woman delivered after Paul Simon invited her to play and sing at a concert in Toronto Saturday.
Kelligrews native Rayna Ford called out to the legendary singer-songwriter to play the song Duncan – saying it was the first song she learned to play on guitar.
He heard her, and motioned for her to step on the stage and play it.
An astonished Ford took him up on his offer.
She said Simon helped her get through it.
"He just kept saying, 'Go, go,'" she said.
"I recall at the last part of it, I got quite nervous and was still looking at him and then he came and whispered, 'E minor' because I missed a chord. He was just great," she said.
"He was an absolute amazing gentleman and it was just an honour and such a privilege."
Her performance at the Sound Academy was recorded and posted on YouTube.
