Anna Graceman To Sing Nation Anthem at Bears and Cardinals Game
(SL) Anna Graceman will sing the national anthem this Sunday in front of a capacity crowd of over 63,000 football fans this Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium when the Arizona Cardinals take on the Chicago Bears. Kick off is at 2:45 pm Mountain Standard Time.
The 13 year old singer and songwriter is no stranger to performing our national anthem in front of huge crowds - earlier this year she did the honors at a Seattle Mariners game in front of more than 50,000 people. But Sunday will be by far the largest live audience Anna has ever performed in front of.
That said, the Juneau, Alaska native performed for a television audience of millions when she made it all the way to the Top Ten in the 2011 season of America's Got Talent. And with more than 50 Million total views on Youtube, Miss Graceman has an audience well beyond the football fans who will be treated to her "Star Spangled Banner" performance on Sunday.
Anna is busy prepping for the upcoming America's Got Talent Allstars Tour which kicks off in February and will hit more than 40 cities across the country. She's also slated to perform at the in January at the annual National Association of Music Merchants show, a trade show where the latest in musical instruments and other performance equipment are shown off in Anaheim, California.
On Christmas eve Anna will perform "The Christmas Song" on the Hallmark Channel's Home and Family morning show which airs from 8am - 10am nationally. She blew everyone away on the set last week with her rendition of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." The production staff was so enthralled by her performance that they asked her back for their Christmas show!
Anna's highly anticipated debut album was released earlier this year and has been embraced by her fans all over the world. Music videos from Anna Graceman have already amassed more than a million views in the short time that they've been on Youtube. Now with Anna performing before the Cardinals vs. Bears game, even hardcore football fans will see what everybody is talking about.
