Janine Stange, who has come to be known as "The National Anthem Girl," made history by completing her mission to sing the "Star Spangled Banner" in all 50 states in time for the 200th anniversary of Francis Scott Key penning the lyrics for the hallowed song on September 14, 2014.
The Long Island, NY native marked Tennessee as her 50th state, when she sang prior to the Tennessee Titans vs. Minnesota Vikings NFL preseason game in Nashville on August 28 at 7:00pm CST.
She has appeared on Today Show, Fox & Friends and NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams. Her story has been told across America on every major network: ABC, CBS, CNN, FOX, MSNBC, NBC.
At each stop, Janine sets up a table after she performs and provides blank "thank you" cards for attendees to write messages to our deployed military and veterans. Each card goes into an Operation Gratitude military care package.
Stange also was amidst the major celebrations in Baltimore - the city the prides itself in being our anthem's birthplace - during the weekend that marked the song's 200th Anniverary
