Three-year-old boy makes an impression on the crowd with his rendition of the national anthem.
A three-year-old boy in Auburn, New York under the impression of the crowd in a minor league baseball game, after he sang the national anthem.
The video, which is shared on different social media platforms and has racked up thousands of views, was included Wednesday on the Auburn Doubledays home game against the Lowell Spinners.
The boy, Drake, Grillo, was asked by the Auburn Doubledays in the singing of the national anthem, according to KOMO News.
“I was really nervous. I didn’t know how to be calm for him and help him with the words go to him, but he did it all myself,” Chelsea Grillo, Drake’s mother, told CNYCentral.
“I was proud of him,” she said, adding that Drake is singing the Star-Spangled Banner since last winter.
Drake is scheduled to sing the national anthem again later this month at an Auburn Doubledays game that will also serve as a fundraiser for people with hip dysplasia. The “Sips and Flips for Hips” event will take place on 29 July.
