My NFL Anthem Debut

When I received the email that day, I had to tell myself to calm down, in an effort to stop myself from screaming at the top of my lungs in my office.

Needless to say, I'm still trying to calm myself so that I don't ruin my vocal chords for my debut anthem appearance for NFL Superbowl champs, the Seattle Seahawks, as they battle their Superbowl runnerups, the Denver Broncos. Sure to be one of the most watched rematches this season, this game will be sold out and my performance may be aired on television which means not only will 67,000 people be hearing me sing live, but potentially millions more on tv! Not to mention, I'll be singing the anthems at the loudest stadium in the country - CenturyLink Field!

I'm humbled, overwhelmed (in a good way), and left feeling an enormous amount of love and support from all of my friends and family, and from people I haven't even met! Twitter has been such a great medium for me to reach out to people, and vice versa. The amount of emotion I've felt for people's special words in 140 characters just puts me to tears and I am so thankful!

Here's to representing Canada at the Seahawks' Canadian Appreciation game. I hope I make you all proud.

Check out the game to see if I make it on tv - Sunday September 21, 2014, 1:25pm, and follow me on twitter for the play by play - @mariehui
