Some kids just seem destined for greatness. Even at such a young age, they have the talent and self-assurance to perform in front of huge crowds.
The youngest individual to ever sing the national anthem at New York’s Carrier Dome stadium was a three-year-old.
That national anthem of ours is the cutest thing ever.
Watch this youngster perform the traditional song used to kick off a Syracuse Women’s basketball game, and you won’t believe your eyes.
Little three-year-old Drake Grillo is an absolute doll and was clearly destined for stardom.
It’s hard to believe a three-year-old could recall the words to the “Star-Spangled Banner” let alone perform it in front of a live audience of almost 6,000 people.
But Drake Grillo is no average kid; he plays the song with confidence and charms the audience.
The young man from Auburn, New York, was announced, and he began singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” right away. Thankfully, his mother is there to comfort him on her knees.
The young performer is flawless. He sings it note for note, and the crowd goes wild.
You can’t find a more valuable performance of the national anthem than this one.
The fact that he hasn’t fully mastered his «rs» makes the performance all the more endearing.
Many in the crowd are gushing with excitement, and some are even snapping pictures and videos of the infant.
Everyone in the silent crowd continues to be taken aback as the song unfolds.
He seems considerably older than his actual age. Drake’s performance of the song is impressive because many professional singers would collapse under the weight of expectation.
You could hear a pin drop the entire time the toddler is singing, and everyone in the room is transfixed on him. You could see him say it a hundred times and still find it fascinating.
The three-year-old naturally mispronounces some of the more difficult terminology, but this only serves to increase the adorableness of the situation.
Drake has a harder time pronouncing words like “gleaming” and “perilous,” but he does his best. After all, he only just started talking, so it’s all the more remarkable.
An adorable 3-year-old boy performs the National Anthem in front of crowd of nearly 6,000 people.
Drake gives the song a strong ending by playing through it without stopping.
The young child finishes his story and quickly goes to his mother in a fit of shyness. What an accomplishment!
The film has been viewed over 3.2 million times and has over 44,000 likes on YouTube, proving its widespread popularity.
Many people found it remarkable that he could execute the song so well at such a young age. In a humorous YouTube remark, one user said:
“The fact that he didn’t forget the words is impressive like what some singers have done. Great job buddy!!”
