Antioch singer Jessica Caylyn sings National Anthem at A’s final playoff game, Thursday night

Jessica Caylyn sings the National Anthem at the Oakland A’s playoff game in the Coliseum on Thursday night, October 11, 2012.

Antioch resident Jessica Caylyn was chosen to sing the National Anthem before the sell-out crowd at the Oakland A’s American League Division Series game against the Detroit Tigers on Thursday night, October 11, 2012.

Here’s what she had to say about the experience: “I’ve sang the Anthem at several games, races, etc., but I was a little nervous because my voice was more tired then usual. Also, I could feel the energy level of the crowd and it was much bigger then regular season games. I didn’t meet any of the players this time around, that’s okay though I got my fair share of eye candy. Ha! It’s not only an honor but very exciting to sing our nation’s most well respected song, for so many people. I think artists tend to forget what the song actually represents, in that moment it’s not all about shining as a vocalist. It’s about delivering the song in a classy manner. I just hope the crowd felt that I did it justice!”

    Great job Jessica, that’s a huge deal! It sounds exciting. Glad to know that we have up and coming artists here in Antioch.

    I was at the game and sat right in front and heard Jessica sing. Good job but I heard the crowd comments, we would have appreciated her showing some A’s colors instead of just peach & black. Most of the other anthem singers do. A lesson for the future. 🙂
