Sting took a break from his tour with Peter Gabriel over the weekend to take a wedding gig in Chicago.
According to Page Six, Sting became the greatest wedding singer ever when he played a 30-minute set at a ritzy wedding reception for the daughter of Jeffrey Hecktman, who is the CEO of financial services company Hilco Global. Sting was the headlining act of the night which also included performances from Kool and the Gang and Colombian singer Carlos Vives.
