Video: National anthem tryouts
Singing the national anthem at a sporting event can either be a success (Kelly Clarkson at Sunday's Super Bowl) or a disaster (Steven Tyler, Roseann Barr, Christina Aguilera, et al.) Now imagine that you have to sing two anthems. That's the scenario that hopefuls faced when they showed up for auditions Saturday in Dunedin at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium.
Those trying out had to sing both the Star-Spangled Banner and O' Canada if they wanted a shot at singing before spring training games in March for the Toronto Blue Jays as well as summer games for Dunedin's minor league Jays. Our videographer was there to capture the scene as the day went on. Be sure to catch the ending, with a nice little bonus barbershop serenade.
