In the state of New Jersey, September 23 will be celebrated as “Bruce Springsteen Day.” New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy issued a proclamation in honor of the legendary singer this past weekend.
“Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band remains one of the most iconic and influential bands throughout the state of New Jersey and around the globe,” the proclamation reads.
“Beyond being an iconic singer, songwriter and family man, ‘The Boss’ has acted on film, TV and Broadway, recorded a podcast series with President Barack Obama, written, starred in and produced documentaries, and has helped countless charities in New Jersey and around the world.”
The legendary singer has not only been honored in his home state of New Jersey, but also at the White House. Last month, he received the National Medal of Arts from the Biden Administration. Other recipients included Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Gladys Knight and Vera Wang.
“The Boss is here,” President Joe Biden said during the medal ceremony.
“Bruce, some people are just born to run, man.”
Bruce Springsteen is one of the most iconic and influential musicians – and New Jerseyans – of all time, period.
