Gwinnett Stripers Looking For National Anthem Performers

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (CW69 News at 10) -- The Gwinnett Stripers have launched a virtual search for performers for the National Anthem ahead of ballgames.

Anyone who is interested -- individuals, vocal groups of five singers or less, or musicians -- are asked to send a digital submission, video or audio, of their acapella or unaccompanied performance of the National Anthem to no later than January 31.

According to the Stripers, candidates will be judged on "tone, pace (90 seconds or less), and clarity."

Top candidates will be invited to participate in virtual auditions starting next month. No in-person auditions will be held, the team says. Those chosen from the virtual auditions will be contacted to schedule a date to sing the National Anthem during the team's 2022 season.

The Gwinnett Stripers 2022 home opener is set for Tuesday, April 12 at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville against the Nashville Sounds.

The Gwinnett Stripers are the Triple-A minor league affiliate of the Atlanta Braves and play home games at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville. Info on 2022 season tickets can be found at
