Patriot Games: Volleyball Player Sings National Anthem After Sound System Malfunction
It was a knockout performance that wasn't planned.
A recording of the national anthem was supposed to play on the sound system prior to the game, but it malfunctioned. That's when 17-year-old senior Marina Garcia grabbed a microphone and started singing.
She told Inside Edition: “Everyone just started cheering at me to sing.”
She said she was nervous at first.
“When they were telling me to do it, I was kind of like, 'no,' because I'm so shy and then I felt like, 'you know what? I'm just going to do it,'” she said.
She received a massive standing ovation and said, “it's a feeling I’ll never forget.”
Her impromptu performance was so good she was invited to perform at the next game.
