Some of you may remember my 16 year old daughter, Mary Beth who sang the National anthem and videotaped some seminars at the World Taxidermy championships last year. Since then she has performed several times for sporting events at UGA's Stegman Collesium (Athens, Ga.) for 7 to 10,000 fans. Yesterday Mary Beth and Hannah Strickland sang the National Anthem a capella at the NHRA Southern National drag race in Commerce, Ga. There were 80,000 fans present. They set up at the staging area along with a military Flag Corp and sang while a parachute team landed on the track. She said the roar of the crowd was awesome. She had VIP seats in the pressbox and said the dragsters rattled the windows.

I get goosebumps when I here them sing! AWESOME!
Used to race at Norwalk Raceway Park & know how big the crowds can be! Well deserved Congrats to you & the young Lady! It takes a special individual to talk to a crowd that size let alone sing!
Obviously she got her looks AND her talent from her mother. LOL
What george said! ROFLMAO
Congrats to your daughter and to the proud pappy
Rick, you have every reason to gloat, I heard them, and I am glad they are continuing to share their beautiful voices. Hopefully they won't be booked somewhere else, at the next World Show.
Enjoy the rewards of being a great dad.Its nice to hear good things.
All good Daddys should gloat about their daughters. They're the only women we have left to brag after the wives have lost their youth and good looks! please don't tell my wife!
Nothing negative from CECIL! That's a first. I would expect him to say that Rick's daughter is not really his daughter she is a CIA operative implanted to get Bush a better approval rating! Maybe he can get the FCC to ban national anthem because he finds it offensive!
To both you and your daughter. In today's world it is very difficult to raise a child that shows much dedication to anything. you have good reason to be proud. her accomplishments speak measures for the both of you
Now you guys have me blushing. Thanks for the nice comments.
