10-year-old captivates crowd singing national anthem at Atlanta United game

"I was very proud of myself because I didn’t think I could do it, and I did it," she added.

ATLANTA — It's a song you hear generally at most sports games, but when a 10-year-old sang the national anthem at an Atlanta United game, it was a moment to remember.

Alice Parker loves swimming, soccer, and playing with friends. But her talent for singing is one that can't be overlooked. She started singing at just 4 years old. 

“I’m 10, but I turn 11 in two weeks," she said.

And at her young age, she's already captivating crowds. Alice sang the Star Spangled Banner for Atlanta United fans at the game on Sunday against the New York Red Bulls.

“It was really nerve wracking," she said.“There are a lot of people in there.”

Even with feeling anxious, she nailed the performance.

“I decided to look across the stadium and look at the signs," she said. “My friends told me to look at the Pringles sign.”

Her booming voice stunned the crowed. 

"I was very proud of myself because I didn’t think I could do it, and I did it," she added. 

Now she's thinking about the future.

“I’ve been thinking a lot about it and I really want to be a singer.” She said. “But I also really want to be kindergarten teacher. My dad told me I could teach during the day and sing at night.”
