For the past 10 years Michael, who has Down syndrome, has performed “The Star Spangled-Banner” for a local minor league baseball team, the Pawtucket Red Sox, who are based out of Pawtucket, R.I.
Thanks to the help of the Michael Carter Lisnow Respite Center, Michael, who is now 38, was given the opportunity to sing for the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.
His dream of performing for a major league team came true on Thursday, May 1st, singing for a crowd of more than 35,000 fans. It was a performance of a lifetime.
“No, I’m not nervous,” he told WCVB before the game. “Piece of cake.”
He definitely made it look easy. And he’s so happy.
