Check out the link below for video footage! The kids sang with confidence and are lead by Jared Rosenbloom. They met a couple of players and got an autograph or two. And my 10 year old was thrilled to have met Vanessa Hudgens at the game. Apparently, Vanessa congratulated the singers on a job well done. As I watched the game, I noticed a focus on children. In addition to the LHVYC singing the anthem, there was an exhibition game of 2nd and 3rd grade boys from the Knicks Instructional league at half-time. There was also another group of kids that got to greet the players as they came on the court to warm up and there were 4 children that got to help with the balls all night. It was an exciting evening, the Knicks won! But more importantly, the kids won tonight! What a great treat for all these children to have been able to be front and center at the Garden at a sold-out Knicks game!
