Rhonda and the Chiefs

Rhonda Vincent on the big screen at Arrowhead Stadium, singing the National AnthemMountain Heart weren’t the only bluegrass stars to be featured at major sporting events yesterday. Rhonda Vincent had also been invited to sing the National Anthem prior to the kickoff of Sunday’s NFL contest between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Deigo Chargers.

She not only got to sing, but also enjoyed the game with her husband Herb Sandker from the private box of Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt, Jr. Unfortunately, Rhonda failed to provide a good luck charm, and the Chiefs went down 37-7.

Rhonda sent along a few photos of her big day in KC, the first time she’s been able to attend an NFL game.

UPDATED 1:30 p.m. – Rhonda just sent along this video from the game. You can’t see much, but you can hear her excellent rendition of The Star Spangled Banner.
