18 Year-Old Blind Girl With Cerebral Palsy Nails National Anthem at Game 6 (Video)

national anthem

There have been some spotty National Anthem performances during this year’s NBA finals, but the past two games have served as something of a redemption. First, Metallica put together a rockin’ version for Game 5, and now we’ve got the wonder that is Marlana VanHoose knocking the socks off the crowd in Cleveland prior to Game 6.

Marlana is an 18-year-old girl who is blind and stricken with cerebral palsy. But what’s most important for the sake of her performance is that she can sing. Really well.

Just watch as she stuns the crowd at the Q, and makes this version of the song her own. Here’s the clip:

Cleveland ended up succumbing to the Warriors, but I think everyone in attendance at the game—mostly Cleveland fans, mind you—will carry with them this pretty nice memory for quite some time.
