Anthem Girl Gets Some Redemption

Eight-year-old Elizabeth Hughes became the biggest name in the world of Virginia hockey last week when she began singing the National Anthem at a Norfolk Admirals game, only to become the victim of a crappy PA system. In the meantime, as her tiny voice continued to sing, the crowd picked up the volume for her and the country bellowed a collective, “Awwwwww.”

Fortunately, Elizabeth’s 15 minutes of Internet fame live on, as Fox 43 in Southeast Virginia had her on yesterday to once again sing the Star-Spangled Banner, this time with no interruption. Still, wouldn’t it have been fun if the Fox crew went ahead and cut her mic anyway, and then finished singing the song for her? Sure, she probably would have cried, but it would have given her a gimmick. And she’d still be a million times cooler than the “You dun goofed up” chick.
