Public given chance to sing Wildcats National Anthem

July 16, 2005

Albany- Two Albany women have won the chance to lend their voices to the Wildcats. Palmyra Hospital sponsored a Sing for the Team contest.

Anyone could enter. The nine finalists gave it their best in the finals this morning at the Civic Center. Vielienne Jones was selected to sing the National Anthem and Letitia Rice will sing God Bless America.

"I just saw the application in the paper and thought I'd do it just to be doing something," said Vielienne Jones, Singing National Anthem.

Vielienne says, she's nervous about performing before the large crowd. The two will sing during the pre game ceremonies for Military Appreciation Night.  Sixty new recruits will be inducted into the Marine Corps and the Air Force before Saturday's game.
