Drake might not have understood the magnitude of his accomplishment, but adults in attendance sure did. As it turns out, Drake’s performance was a record-breaker for the stadium. He was the youngest person ever to sing the national anthem at the Dome in the stadium’s entire history.
“I just think he’s too little to realize how big of a deal it is,” Chelsea, the boy’s mother, told Syracuse.com. “We just try to stay calm for him and not really talk it up. We don’t ask him if he’s nervous, so then maybe he won’t think of that. I don’t think he really knows what nervous is yet.”
Not only can Drake sing, but he also loves performing. He is a sports fan through and through as well. And he has a lot of pride in the United States.
Drake practices singing with his toy microphones at home. And his favorite song is always the Star Spangled Banner. But this was not even his first time singing it at an official sporting event. During the summer, he sang the anthem for a minor league baseball team in Auburn.
What do you think about this toddler’s rendition of the anthem?
