In 2015, I had the honor and privilege of singing The National Anthem before a Fort Myers Miracle baseball game. There were 1,500 people in attendance.
I was nervous even though I had a few months to prepare. Hell, I had practiced for this day since I was FIVE.
I’m not a pro, I don’t get paid millions to sing. When I went to vocal training, I made it clear that I wanted to sing our Anthem as it should be sung, without grandstanding, but with great honor. So, this is the only time I will ever be able to kick Fergie’s arse at something. 😜
I am incredibly proud of myself for being given this honor. I know my singing isn’t perfect, and it is a tad pitchy, but I’m not a professional. And I remembered the words. 😊
Thank you for listening.
