The National Anthem

As a Navy Veteran who served his country with honor, Kevin has deep conviction about how the National Anthem should be sung.  Kevin believes it should be performed with respect, reverence and remembrance of those who fought for all it stands for, never performed with theatrical flourish or stylization.  "The attention should be on the Anthem, not the singer," according to Kevin. 

He has performed the National Anthem and other beloved patriotic music for many distinguished guests including President Bush, Walter Cronkite, the Boston Red Sox and the Boston Celtics.  A finalist in the Bruins 2018-19 Anthem competition,  you can hear Kevin's audition of the Canadian and US National Anthems here.
