Singing our National Anthem is tricky.

You need lots of range and lots of air in your lungs.  Acappella -- without any music backing you -- is even harder.  Now, do that in front of thousands of people, and it's really tough.  (Just ask Christina Aguilera after she spaced-out a line during the SuperBowl.)

But now imagine being just 8-years-old, singing your heart out at Norfolk, Virginia hockey arena when your microphone cuts out!

Don't worry -- this near disaster has a happy (if not teary) ending.
