It Takes a Village in Boston / On Disabilities Awareness Day

Updated on May 12, 2011

This is what Boston is all about!

On Disabilities Awareness Day, in a baseball stadium (Fenway Park - Boston, MA) what only can be described as a perfect day, is an excellent example of the old saying "It takes a Village". This teenager with autism, who was chosen to sing the national anthem, got a case of the giggles halfway through. Listen to what the crowd does to support him.

I've been to a fair number of ball games in my life, and what impressed me most about the video is the way the crowd stepped up, not just singing the anthem but singing it well. It is not an easy song to sing. A wonderful example to remind us that America still has her soul.

Fenway Park, Boston

Amazing voice of a 7 year old singing "The National Anthem" at a college basketball game

Is it Possible for a 3 year old to Sing "The National Anthem"? You Bet it is!!!
