高校バレーボールの試合前、急きょ国歌斉唱を引き受けた選手の歌唱力がハイレベルすぎると話題に【動画】


10月7日、米テキサス州サン・アントニオで行われた高校のバレーボールの試合は、国歌斉唱でスタートするはずだった。


しかし、CDプレーヤーが壊れて国歌が再生されず、その場に沈黙だけが流れていた。そこで、選手の一人がマイクに近づき、なんとアカペラで国歌を歌い始めたのだ。


国歌のCDが再生できなかった。だから、バレーボール部で合唱団の子を成り行きでコートに送りこんだんだ。すばらしかったよ!ホームズ高校バレーボール部のマリナ・ガルシアさん


急きょ国家斉唱を引き受けたのは、地元のホームズ高校に通うバレーボール部3年生のマリナ・ガルシアさん。「試合の直前に国歌斉唱があるはずだったんだけど、CDが再生されなかったから」と、ローカルニュース局「KSAT」のインタビューに応えている。その時の心境については、「緊張はしなかったわ。歌うことになって、なんだかワクワクした」と語っている。



彼女の即席パフォーマンスが終わると、両チームから歓声が沸きあがり、観客席ではスタンディング・オベーションが起きた。

ガルシアさんは、「初めて言葉を発した頃からずっと歌っているの。小学3年生の時から合唱団に入っているわ」とABCニュースに自身の歌唱力について語っている。


もしスポーツの道がうまくいかなかったとしても、ガルシアさんには前途有望なバックアップのキャリアが待ち受けているだろう。

愛猫&愛犬が写真に写りこんだ瞬間【おもしろフォト集】
That cat is up to something, and we want no part of it.
WHOA
"What, what is this?"
"You'd rather take a picture of a straw than take one of me?
"Took a picture of baby Avery and dachshund Milo tunneled behind her to get in the picture." -Submitted By: Diane Lenier
Watch out, baby!
Who's bombing who?
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!
"Oh sorry, wrong room."
"What are you reading?"
At least someone is trying to stop these from happening.
Nothing like a perfectly timed tail.
The beer is poison!
"Why are you taking pictures of butts?"
It's cool, he's the new boom mic operator.
"My turn next!"
Just really happy to be here.
At least that last guy is in the picture.
This cat's great-grandchildren are probably in this slideshow as well.
"Turn left on Sunset."
"I want to sit on the chair."
Sneak attack is underway.
Stopping inappropriate Facebook photo uploads since 2008.
How is he even doing that with his neck?
What are you doing here?
Also: "Soon"
Talk about a third wheel.
The other cat REALLY doesn't like glamour shots.
"Um, I think someone forgot my Fancy Feast."
"Do I smell fish?"
"Um, a little help?"
What is this contraption.
We're assuming that this guy was attempting to take an underwater selfie.
"Ignore me!"
He does not approve.
His night vision is perfect for interrupting hipster photo shoots.
He stood on that pinecone to get in this photo: commitment.
"Sorry, did I ruin your postcard?"
Still part of the family.
Maybe planned, still terrific.
"My husband and I were taking our border collie, Jack, out for his daily beach run and play. (This) is the photo of him being photobombed. I didn't see the dog until I saw it on the screen after the photo was taken."- Submitted By Laura Hancock
"I was trying to take a picture of this cute Waterbuck calf, when it's mom stepped in to see what I was doing to her baby...LOL." Submitted by: Karen Stephens
"I was taking a picture of my cat Simon one day when Teddy got a bit jealous (like he always does). Hope you enjoy!" Submitted by: Hali Jakeman
Submitted by: Karen Lyons Kalmenson
In our experience cats really do hate driving.
This dog is huge!
Where was this cat standing?

"Here is Badger, completely unaware of his archenemy Groucho doing the bombing..." -Submitted By: Kimberly Rai Cook
Submitted By: Heather Smith Robitzek
Submitted By: Christopher Guignon
Hey! Me too, right?
Submitted By: Alan Kelly
"Photobomb of my dachshund with my then 3-month-old daughter." -Submitted By: Melanie Walsh
Submitted By: Jean Seraichyk
This goat would clearly lose hide-and-seek.
That cat takes itself way too seriously.
"I was taking head shots for a friend when Albert kept entering the frame and posing. This is the shot when my friend had had enough." - Submitted By: Kathlyn Horan
These cows would have been such a good background otherwise.
Submitted by: Blacky Bokich
All the dog that's fit to photograph.
Aflac has to be responsible for this.
Submitted By: Alexandra Foster
Submitted By: Reese Levine
"My husky is pretty angry she's not included in the picture." -Submitted By: Kimberly Fernandez
Submitted By: Marcelle Gonzalez
Submitted By: Jenny Haniver
Submitted By: Ren Meier
"An animal photobomb taken in the "off leash" portion of Austin's Town Lake hike and bike trail. This is actually our dog, presumably telling us how she really feels about the new baby!" -Submitted By: Joanna
Just wait for it.
"Well, hello!"
"I make this look easy."
The lion doesn't even know he is posing, he's just naturally suave.
This dolphin really deserves credit for making this picture great.
"Dog park fun (Jack, Marley, and Kiana) getting their picture taken when a great dane decides to make a cameo!!" -Submitted By: Brynn Fesler
"I'm part of the family too. Why shouldn't I be in the picture?"
"Another animal is getting more attention than me!"
Maybe this was planned?
"Oh, you were taking a picture?"
Just a man, a woman, and their horse.
Even dogs can enjoy 3D.
The photographer is holding a steak.
This donkey has a place to go.
HEEYYYY!
Quick window bomb before flying away.
Just gonna sneak in here.
Cool boat, dude.
Pretty scenic, huh?
Bet he didn't see that coming.
Is this cute or just incredibly creepy?
Finally worked!
Nope, FCC cat doesn't approve of this.
Get a room.
Down here!
He knew what he was doing.
Sweet picture, dude.
Classic.
HEY!
This probably ended well.
Don't get out of the car.
Double Bomb.
That couch looks pretty comfy.
Dude, pipe down over there.
What's he planning?
When you gotta go, you gotta go.
Up close and personal.
You're never too young to get photobombed.
Cute couple.
C'mon, ditch the girl and come play with this ball.
Not just any goat bomb, but a sarcastic goat bomb.
Sup?
Cool speech, bro.
Nice costume, kid.
Cheeeeeese!
This way's better.
A fun-filled day at the park.
What are you guys up to?
Seriously?
Poor dog never even saw it coming.
BEHIND YOU!
Bears have needs, too.
Don't let the hair distract you from the bomb.
C'mon, I'm cute too.
Always crashing penguin parties (and our Twitter avatar)
