It's the dream of teenagers everywhere to jam with their best loved bands, but for Aucklander Keegan Lewis, last night that dream became a reality.
Keegan suffers from cerebral palsy, but he didn't let that hold him back when he took over as lead vocalist for his favourite group Opshop
For one night only Keegan was the lead singer of his favourite band.
The 16 year old is recording a CD with Opshop through Make A Wish New Zealand, an organisation that helps grant wishes to children with life threatening medical conditions
“Opshop, they're the bomb,” he says.
Opshop band member Bobby Kennedy is getting to know his new bandmate.
“He’s demanding as a producer. Hard work. He’s having a break in his trailer, getting his hair done.”
Keegan has loved music all his life. He's written his own songs and wants to be as successful as Opshop when he grows up.
“I feel privileged and hopefully they will follow me on Twitter.”
Another wish that may come true.
