Red Sox Fan With Down Syndrome Sings National Anthem At Fenway (Videos)

Michael Mullins finally saw his dream come true last week at Fenway Park.

Mullins, a 38-year-old diehard Red Sox fan with Down syndrome, sang the national anthem before Boston hosted the Tampa Bay Rays in a Thursday night clash. The performance was a raving success.

β€œI nailed it,” Mullins said after watching a video of his performance at the Michael Lisnow Respite Center on Main Street last Friday, according to the MetroWest Daily News.

Mullins reportedly has sung “The Star-Spangled Banner” at McCoy Stadium — home of the Red Sox’s Triple-A affiliate in Pawtucket — for the past 10 years. He has performed at several other sporting events, too. Nothing quite compares to belting out the national anthem before a boisterous crowd at Fenway Park, though, and Sharon Lisnow — co-founder of Michael Lisnow Respite Center — couldn’t help but marvel at Mullins’ impressive rendition.

β€œIt was a night of a lifetime,” Lisnow said.

Check out Mullins’ inspiring performance and preparation in the videos below.
