An operatic soprano performed the National Anthem at the Super Bowl this year.  It was beautiful.  No, she's not a pop singer.  She didn't need that kind of infamy.  This lady's got SKILLS.  Hats off to whoever handed down the decision to hire a trained, professional musician to perform our National Anthem rather than take the low road and hire a 'pop star' to do it to grab headlines.  Well done.

It's about time they got someone to sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl who actually has operatic soprano chops.  Beautifully done.

Story
Tagline
I'm addicted to music. I have a flair for the dramatic, and I enjoy being a little bizarre and eccentric. It's just me. I consume literature in gigantic gulps. It sustains my brain and is a great excuse for hot tea and relaxing. My enthusiasm is genuine. I try to be a kind person, but I won't be backed into a corner. (Irish temper...) I love history, politics, photography, and techno gizmos. I'm a teacher, an aspiring entrepreneur, and a musician for hire.
