15-Yr-Old Takes Mic For National Anthem — 1st Note Leaves Crowd Slack-Jawed.

Many of us remember what it’s like to be 15: acne, homework, practice, rinse and repeat. Yes, the teenage years can be tough.

Sam Keith, looks like the typical teen on the outside — until he grabs a mic!

Sam was a 15-year-old Sophomore at Nashoba Regional High School in Massachusetts when he was asked to sing the national anthem before his own football game.

His voice sent chills down everyone’s spines.

Some may have been surprised to see a football player step up to the mic, but not Sam’s friends. They knew him as a singer and actor at the school.

Upon the first note, it was obvious Sam has a stunning voice.


The notes Sam belts sound less like they could come out of someone not even old enough to legally drive and more like they belong to a figure like Luciano Pavarotti.

Just listen to Sam in the video below, and share this teen’s incredible talent with a friend.
