13-Year-Old Singer Who Forgot Words During National Anthem: ‘I Can’t Give Up’

The teenage powerhouse who stumbled while singing the national anthem at a New Jersey Devils hockey game is explaining what happened. Lauralie Mufute, 13, repeatedly tried to get through the anthem, but the 14,000 fans inside Newark’s Prudential Center helped her out with the lyrics Friday night. “I was thrown off,” she told Inside Edition. “I'm glad the people in the stadium joined in and helped me sing and we continued to the end.” The teenager said she did feel disappointed when she stopped.
