Anthony Gargiuia is a 9 year old singer with a voice from heaven. I mean he could sing the phone book and it gives you goose bumps.

The National Anthem the way it was meant to be sung.

Anthony is a Glenmont, NY native who at age 2 started singing and has been singing ever since. He made his first public appearance when he was 5 years old by entering a Radio Disney singing at competition in Albany, New York. He won and received time in recording studio after sing “Midnight Train to Georgia.”

In May 2006 Anthony entered a local Radio Disney “High School Musical” singing competition and won. He came in second place in the country and was awarded an engraved trophy for his efforts. From that day, he has been busy sing all across the country. You may have seen him on The Ellen Show and the Today Show.

Anthony is the youngest performer to ever sing at Carnegie Hall in New York City. He has sang the National Anthem Knick’s basketball games at Madison Square Garden, the Belmont Stakes, and Boston Bruins hockey games.

I am disappointed by the people behind him without their hands over their hearts. When did we stop doing that? I was a my grand-daughters high school graudation last weekend and I noticed that about half the crowd just stood there. No singing, no hand over the heart. Have we forgot what this song means? Oh how I ache for my country.

I thought it would be a great way to end the week by seeing this kid sing the National Anthem.

God bless this kid and God Bless our Country.
