Is This The Best Version Of The National Anthem EVER? 10-Year Old Girl Fighting Cancer Delivers it With Poise

News

This really puts things in perspective.

Lily Anderson is just 10-yrs-old, but her rendition of the National Anthem before Thursday's Braves-Pirates game at Turner Field in Atlanta inspired the longest standing ovation Braves pitcher Peter Moylan has ever witnessed.

Lily's remarkable performance was part of "Rally Night," a special event for kids fighting cancer. And fighting cancer is exactly what Lily has been doing since she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma Cancer in 2009.

Despite a two year battle that included chemotherapy, radiation and surgery, on Thursday night Lily Anderson delivered the National Anthem with all of the grace and professionalism one might expect from a seasoned performer.

We salute this young lady and all of the participants in Rally Night.

And for the record, The Pittsburgh Pirates came to Atlanta and beat the Braves on Thursday night, 5-2... but thanks to Lily and the rest of the Rally Kids, there were no losers.
