Behind the Mic: B/R's Matt King Sings the National Anthem at Oakland A's Opener

Damon BruceHost, Behind the MicApril 6, 2013

Opening Day for baseball is a grand stage for all players to perform on.  It is an even bigger stage for the singer of the national anthem to start the game.

Behind the Mic presents this reality for Bleacher Report's own Senior Content Producer, Matt King. King has been known around the office as the best singer, but not even he would realize that he would end up singing at a sold out O.co Coliseum.

One of the many hidden talents of Bleacher Report's employees is no longer hidden to the fans of the Oakland A's.  Be on the lookout for Matt King (@TheRealMattKing) in future games and be sure to follow host Damon Bruce on Twitter (@damonbruce).

Watch the full anthem here.
