Kierstyn sings the Star Spangled Banner

On Thursday Kierstyn walked up to her principal and asked if they were going to be singing the Star Spangled Banner at the school pep rally the next day.  Her principal said that no, they weren't planning to but that it sounded like a good idea.  And then my fearless daughter asked if SHE could sing.  After checking with the teacher in charge of the pep rally it was decided that yes, Kierstyn could sing the National Anthem at the start of the pep rally.  She practiced Thursday night, making sure she knew all the words.  I was there to film it.  I have to say that I was so nervous I thought I might get sick!  But of course I had no reason to be.  She was absolutely amazing!!!  Rumor has it there was more than one person in the audience with tears in their eyes. :)
