"I've really been singing before I could talk. My mom said when she had the TV on when I was little I would hum the tune," she told CBS Miami's Rudeabeh Shahbazi. "I sing all the time at school, not sure my teacher enjoys that, but I sing all the time."


WCBS-TV joins with all CBS owned-and-operated stations in broadcasting the song to start each morning at around 4:28 a.m. all year round.

The Star-Spangled Banner was once a staple on local TV stations, starting and ending the broadcast day.
