WATCH: Blind Teenager With Cerebral Palsy Nails The National Anthem At The NBA Finals

By Sarah Carroll

Congratulations to the Golden State Warriors for winning their first championship in 40 years and to Andre Iguodala for becoming the first NBA Finals MVP to not start a single game during the regular season.

But let’s be honest…the real MVP last night was national anthem singer Marlana VanHoose.

The 19-year-old, who was born blind and suffers from cerebral palsy, absolutely slayed “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

VanHoose certainly had some huge shoes to fill. Usher, Santana, and Metallica were just a few of the A-listers who performed during the Warriors-Cavaliers series.

She regularly sings for the University of Kentucky the the Cleveland Cavaliers during their regular season and was profiled by ESPN in an E:60 special.

Watch VanHoose’s spectacular performance above and learn more about her story below:
