    in Business

    Patrick Mason joins Anna's Journey to discuss the how, when, where and how of becoming a singer for various public venues, especially professional sports teams.  We'll talk about the glory of using one's God-given talents to sing the National Anthem.


    Know that Patrick Mason started performing National Anthems back in the 1990s for work events, and got his first major break singing at Baltimore's Memorial Stadium for a Canadian Football League (CFL) game in 1994, where I sang O Canada, the Canadian national anthem.  Since that time, I have had the honor of singing both anthems on many occasions, including solo appearances at NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA, MLS, PRCA Rodeo and World Team Tennis venues.


    His classical tenor voice is awesome!
