Video: Bobby G Award winners sing National Anthem at Rockies game

Video by John Moore, Emily Lozow and the Colorado Rockies.

Evatt Salinger and Emma Buchanan of Durango High School, who last month were named Outstanding Actor and Actress at the 2015 Bobby G Awards at the Denver Center, sang the National Anthem before a crowd of 30,698 at the Colorado Rockies‘ game against the St. Louis Cardinals on June 10 at Coors Field. It was the first time either of the students had set foot in a major sports stadium. In three weeks, Salinger and Buchanan will represent Colorado at the National High School Musical Theatre Awards, which culminate in a performance on a Broadway stage in New York City.

Of the past 30 days, Salinger says, “It’s blasting us off a little bit into a world of the unknown. Which is where we wanted to go, but we just didn’t think it would happen this quickly.”

After singing the anthem, he added, “That made us feel like we are on helium.”

Over the next few weeks, Salinger and Buchanan will be video-blogging their road to the national awards for BroadwayWorld.Com
