GREATER LAFAYETTE, Ind (WLFI)—A group of four 6th grade students from Lafayette Christian School were chosen to sing the National at a Purdue Baseball game on Sunday.
The quartet was chosen after submitting an audition video to Purdue Athletics.
When Purdue Athletics announced they were accepting video auditions these students were already preparing to sing the National Anthem at Solo and Ensemble, which is a State Competition that performers must qualify for.
The group said this is a huge honor and accomplishment and hope to sing more in the future.
"I'm hoping that they'll see that kids can do a really good job with singing and we love Purdue," said female singer Elise Medrano.
The only male singer in the group said this is a great first step.
"I just want to be recognized a little bit and maybe all of us can do this again next year," said male singer Scotty Cooper.
The quartet competed at Solo and Ensemble in February and received gold.
