We’ve had plenty of discussion about the playing of the National Anthem, entirely due to the protests surrounding it. However, on Sunday, we had a great moment with the Anthem. Audrey Rose sang the Anthem before the game and belted out a great version, as you can see below.
Rose is notable for her connection to San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. She was born with a congenital heart defect and without eyes. She met Kaepernick at Camp Taylor, which is where Kaepernick does a ton of charity work. You can watch some video of Kaepernick and Rose having a fun time during the annual Camp Taylor fundraiser. Also, 49ers Webzone had this fantastic article about her story.
There are all sorts of great versions of the National Anthem out there, and I honestly think this can be added to the list.
Here's our beautiful daughter singing the National Anthem. We could only get the jumbo tran video because of the crowd. We will have a better video from Make A Wish and the 49ers at a later time!Posted by Heather Jordan Walker on Sunday, October 2, 2016
