Suburban mom’s duet with Sting

posted by Jason Kottke   Oct 08, 2008

Seattle mom Jessica Ketola recently got to go up on stage for a soundcheck with Sting and The Police. Sting was so impressed with her voice that he invited her to sing with him during the concert.

The stage manager didn’t help. “Sting never shares a microphone,” he muttered to Ketola as she waited in the wings before the concert. “So don’t [expletive] up.” But in true fairy-tale tradition, a white knight swept in with a bottle of water and a few reassuring words. “He says that to me every night, too,” Sting confided.

Here’s a video of the soundcheck and one of Ketola killing it on Don’t Stand So Close to Me. (via girlhacker)
