Sir Rod Stewart, an iconic performer with a career marked by chart-topping success, recently concluded his UK Tour in Edinburgh, leaving the audience with a heartwarming surprise.
Amid electrifying performances of hits like “Addicted to Love,” “First Cut is the Deepest,” “Maggie May,” “Have I Told You Lately?,” and “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?,” the singer brought his 94-year-old sister, Mary, on stage during the rendition of his classic, “Sailing.”
Wearing a sparkling black-and-white striped shirt, Rod Stewart proudly introduced Mary to the audience as she adorned him with a sailor’s hat for the performance. The adorable moment saw Mary joining her brother on stage, wrapping an arm around him and singing along. In an interview with The Mirror, Sir Rod expressed the significance of this moment, stating, “At 94, she’s on a rock’n’roll stage and loving it. She has and continues to teach me about life.”
Despite not always being close, the loss of family members, including two brothers and a sister, brought Rod and Mary closer together. The support of family, particularly Mary, has been crucial for Sir Rod, especially after the recent passing of his brothers.
Despite concerns about his health expressed by his children, who encourage him to retire, Sir Rod remains committed to his passion for performing.
He reassures the public that he takes good care of himself and looks forward to continuing what he loves. The touching moment with Mary on stage becomes a poignant symbol of family bonds and resilience in the face of personal loss.
