(Oklahoma City, OK)
Saturday night. 8pm. 18,000 people in the room.
I was graciously asked to perform the national anthem at the LA Clippers vs. OKC Thunder game.
It had been years since I had performed the national anthem for a crowd even close to this size. And honestly, it was kind of a blur until the very end. But sometimes that’s how some of the best performances go, just being lost in it until the very end. So you hope you have some pictures and video to commemorate the occasion.
Special thanks to my good buddy, Chad Taylor, my parents, and other family & friends who were at the game and took some pictures and video. We were able to get some usable footage of the moment. And being able to share the below video link w/ friends and fans on social media was really special too.
It was a great first time back performing the national anthem and such a cool moment when thousands of people pause, and stand united in a moment of respect. Thank you Oklahoma City Thunder for having me.
