This girl is eight years old and it’s unlikely you can sing the national anthem as well as she did Wednesday

A small-sized, big-voiced singer impressed the Progressive Field crowd with her rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" on Wednesday.

Eight-year-old Kayleigh Collins delivered Francis Scott Key's stately paean to America with the skill of a much older performer. If Jonathan Mayo decides to move into evaluating top singing prospects next year, he'll definitely want to keep a close eye on this one.
