Just 11-year-old and so brave!
Following the racist tweets after his National Anthem performance at Game 3 of NBA Finals, Sebastien De La Cruz returned at game 4 to sing it once again.
Just two nights after his performance that sparked racist remarks beautifully performed the “Star Spangled Banner" at the NBA Finals in San Antonio and this time this brave little kid was introduced by San Antonio mayor Julian Castro.
It’s been a tough week for the boy who just helped Spurs by singing on Tuesday. Darius Rucker, who was supposed to perform, was unable to arrive to the venue before the game and the team asked Sebastien to step in.
Before his performance at Game 4, the president himself tweeted in his support:
His performance on Thursday, greeted by cheers and applause, was simply perfect to shut up the haters. Sebastian even received a handshake from the head coaches of both the Spurs and the Heat.
Check out his beautiful rendition of The Star Spangled Banner in the video above.
