UPDATED: Meet the belter who'll sing US anthem before Donaire fight

October, 20, 2011
For a 12-year-old, Liahna Sta. Ana of Freehold, NJ has a helluva resume. Puts mine to shame, actually.

So does her website. I'm getting busy on building mine right after this, I swear.

This is branding done right.

Ana is something of an old hand as a songstress at 12, but she gets what may be the gig of her young life when she sings the US anthem before the Nonito Donaire-Omar Narvaez fight on Saturday at MSG's WaMu Theater.

Donaire chose stay and Tiffany Viray, coincidentally also of Freehold, to sing the anthems. Check out this video of Ana, who was interviewed at Gleason's Gym, talking about the WaMU gig.
