John Mellencamp is currently on his Live and In Person tour, and folks who caught his recent show in Los Angeles were treated to quite a special moment. People reports the singer brought three of his grandkids onstage to join him.

The trio — Dove, 2, Cruz, 6, and Slate, 9 — are the children of Mellencamp’s daughter, Real Housewives star Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. They came up to help the rocker perform his 1982 number one hit “Jack & Diane,” with Mellencamp telling the crowd, “I have a surprise, I have grandchildren who are dying to help me sing this song.”

Next up, Mellencamp’s Live and In Person tour hits the Encore Theatre at the Wynn in Las Vegas for a two-night stand March 24 and 25. A complete list of tour dates can be found at
