A 90-year-old Jewish great-grandmother from New Jersey is one of the new faces of JDate's "Powered By Yentas" campaign.

Bea Slater of Springfield is a grandmother of six and great-grandmother of four, NJ.com reports.

When a video of Grandma Bea introducing Steven Van Zandt of the  Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul before a concert went viral, a neighbor suggested she apply for a JDate casting call, NJ.com says.

In less than a day, she booked it.

JDate says the campaign celebrates the time-honored tradition of matchmaking by old Jewish women.

The ads are across New York and Chicago, with Miami and Los Angeles possibly next.
