Beautiful: Man's National Anthem dream is fulfilled
BOSTON (Derek Drake) -- Dreams come true at baseball stadiums across the country as millions of fans fill the stands to cheer their teams on to victory.
But for one Massachusetts man his dream was to sing the National Anthem at Fenway Park.
Last week, Mike Mullins, 38, had that dream come true. Mullins has Down syndrome and has always loved music.
Mullins practiced for weeks at the Michael Carter Lisnow Respite Center in Hopkinton, Mass. along side staffers Dan Cloutier and Arva Ferguson -- who accompanied Mullins at Fenway.
"We have heard the anthem 200 times around here in recent days," center director Sharon Lisnow told WCVB-TV. "He is so excited. This is the biggest day of his life."
When asked by WCVB-TV's Jack Harper if he was nervous, Mullins replied, "No, I'm not nervous... Piece of cake!"
He had about 10 practice performances at Pawtucket Red Sox games in preparation for his big day.
And when his time came to step up to the microphone... He nailed his performance!
