National Museum of American History named Trevecca staff member Angie Carr as a semi-finalist in the National Anthem YouTube Singing Contest.

Carr is 1 of 15 semifinalists chosen out of 868 entries. The semi-finalists were selected according to popularity on YouTube, vocal performance, originality, and accuracy of lyrics.

The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, home of the Star-Spangled Banner, the flag that inspired the national anthem, launched the Star-Spangled Banner YouTube Singing Contest in partnership with USA Weekend Magazine earlier this year. 

The top video will be chosen by a panel of celebrities, Smithsonian judges and representatives from the Baltimore Orioles and USA Weekend Magazine. The winner will be announced May 19. 

The grand-prize winner will be invited to perform the national anthem at the museum and at the Baltimore Orioles versus Atlanta Braves game in Baltimore on Flag Day, June 14.
