This was in a word awesome. Pay attention Christina Aguilera.
10 year-old Julia Dale wowed the crowd at American Airlines arena last night before game 2 of the Heat/Mavericks game.
Her rousing rehearsal three hours before tipoff not only brought a halt to all action inside AmericanAirlines Arena, but also led ABC’s director to request that she do it just like that again for real, because he was going to make sure she was part of the national telecast.
Not that you’d ever sense it strictly by hearing her powerful voice, but Dale is a mere 4 feet tall and certainly could never post up against the man who performed the anthem on the sax during a Heat-Mavs game in ’06 – Clarence “Big Man” Clemons of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band.
