This Man Has Autism And Tries To Sing The National Anthem. The Crowd's Reaction Is Priceless (edited)
As the United States' national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner" is typically played before public sporting events. The lyrics of the song come from a poem by Francis Scott Key called "Defense of Fort M'Henry". The poem was written after the poet witnessed Fort McHenry being bombarded by British ships in the War of 1812's Battle of Fort McHenry. The tune of "To Anacreon in Heaven" then became the music Key's poem would be set to, and the song was renamed "The Star-Spangled Banner". It was first recognized in 1889 for official use by the United States Navy. In this video, a disabled child got the chance to sing the national anthem at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts for Disability Awareness Day.
