Performing Our National Anthem....
Thank you so much
for your beautiful performances of the National Anthem at our
Philadelphia Phantoms games on April 23 and May 1, 2005. You have an
amazing voice, Maura and an even more amazing personality. I am so glad
to have met you! I canít wait to hear you on the radio and be able to
tell people that I know you personally!...
|...The fistic festivities got off to an
apropos start when Maura McKinney Mastro, the lovely and talented
daughter of the late, sainted Jack McKinney, one of the great
Philadelphia Daily news writers, sang the National Anthems for both
teams (The Irish and The American). She was introduced by tuxedoed Nino
Bob Ingram/The Sun
Maura started off the boxing show with a
great rendition of both anthems. It certainly added some class.
From an entertainment perspective, the show was very good...
