Watch Billy Joel sing Uptown Girl to Christie Brinkley, who dances in the audience

Billy Joel Christie Brinkley

This will melt your heart a little, while also giving hope to divorcees the world over. Christie Brinkley recently attended ex-husband Billy Joel’s concert at Madison Square Gardens in New York and captured the whole experience on instagram, including a few front row pics and a family portrait before the show. 

Then came Uptown Girl. For those of you that may not remember, Joel had Brinkley star in the song’s video, filmed in 1983. A star was born.

Now, over 30 years later, Billy Joel was singing the hit song for his beautiful ex-wife while she sat front row with her kids.

Skip to 3:09 to see a very happy Christie Brinkley front row, smiling from ear to ear as the song concludes. Just adorable. 

And just to keep things informative, here’s a look at the original video for Uptown Girl.
