Marine veteran Sgt. Dan Clark was asked to sing during the seventh inning stretch at a major league baseball game. He ended up blowing everyone away with his amazingly powerful voice – especially when he hit the ending notes singing “God Bless America.”
This patriotic song was originally written in 1918 and takes on the form of a prayer and this marine certainly did the song justice that day!
Better known as “The Singing Trooper,” Clark, 53, has performed at over 2,500 sports events, and military and official functions, including many Red Sox games and 24 opening ceremonies of the Boston Marathon in his native Massachusetts.
A 20-year member of the Massachusetts state police, Clark did serve in the Marine Corps from 1980 to 1984, he said, leaving with an honorable discharge.
Sgt. Clark may have a big career ahead of him. Singing in front of 30,000 people he moved them all and especially at the 1:48 mark when he hit the note that no doubt gave everyone attending goosebumps.
It’s clear to see the effect he had on everyone in the crowd who joined in singing with him giving them all a night they will always remember, especially with the grand finale he gave everyone, it’s not wonder the crowd burst into cheers!
Sgt. Clark said, “I’m going to light that place up like never before.” And boy howdy did he ever!
Watch the amazing performance by an American hero:
WOW! How beautiful was that? God Bless Sgt. Clark!
We want to thank this fine Marine for his service to the greatest country in the world!
While you have the Kleenex handy, give this baby a watch. This is without a doubt one of the greatest moments in history!
Spread this far and wide patriots!
