It’s been quite the year for Toronto Raptors coach Nick Nurse.

He, of course, won an NBA championship as a rookie NBA head coach, he’s going to coach Team Canada at the forthcoming FIBA Basketball World Cup and now he can call himself a rockstar — sort of.

On Saturday night, noted Raptors fans Arkells brought Nurse up on stage to perform with them during their show at Budweiser Stage in Toronto.

The song in question, in case you were wondering, appears to have been a cover of classic Stevie Wonder hit “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours.”

Throughout the Raptors’ championship run Nurse had been carrying around his trusted guitar with him on the road.

On Saturday night it looks like he finally got to publicly show off just what he could do with an axe in hand.
