LDS Returned Missionary Sings National Anthem at Preakness Stakes Horse Race


LDS Midshipman and returned missionary Colin Gallacher performed the national anthem at the Preakness Stakes horse race on Saturday. 

Though an experienced soloist, the United States Naval Academy sophomore told the Deseret News he was still nervous to perform in front of such a large audience. 

“You go in with a certain amount of confidence—but you also know the whole world is watching,” he told the Church News.

Watch this RM's incredible performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner" below.
