It’s just about time for America to welcome in the New Year. And what better welcome is there than a rousing version of the National Anthem?

This video of Marlana VanHoose, who sang the National Anthem before a UK Vs. Ole Miss women’s basketball game in 2012, is one of the more inspiring versions we’ve been able to find.

VanHoose, who was 16 at the time, is blind and was born with Cytomegalovirus. She may have not been able to see the crowd, but they aren’t likely to forget seeing her.

Happy New Year everyone.
