Last week in the Full Sail Live venue, several Full Sail students and staff competed for two separate chances to sing the national anthem at an Orlando Magic game later this month. After nearly a dozen patriotic performances, the judges – a panel of four Full Sail staffers – named musical group Adonis the first winner of the afternoon. The five-piece group will be singing their soul-inspired rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” at this Friday’s Magic game vs. the Atlanta Hawks.
Then, in an interesting twist, the judges surprised the crowd and announced that the second winner – who will sing the national anthem at the Orlando Magic vs. Charlotte Bobcats game on Wednesday, April 25 – would be determined by a popular vote. Three finalists were selected – Akita Moore, Marcus Ealy, and Lena Proctor – and you can vote for them starting today right here on the FSBlog. Head over to fullsailblog.com/contest to watch videos of each performance and cast a vote for your favorite. Voting will be open through next Friday, April 20.
