PORT HURON, MI – The Port Huron Fighting Falcons, proud members of the North American Hockey League, are pleased to announce that “The Voice of the Detroit Red Wings” Karen Newman will sing the national anthem before their home game against the Michigan Warriors Sunday, October 27 at 4 p.m. at McMorran Arena.
A truly made-in-Michigan star, Karen Newman has made the national anthem a can’t-miss event at Detroit Red Wings home games for the better part of the last decade. She has provided back-up vocals for iconic superstars Bob Seger and Kid Rock, and has released four solo albums as well.
“We are extremely excited to have Karen Newman perform the national anthem this weekend,” said Fighting Falcons Director of Operations Mike Reed. “We’ve always done our best to provide a great performance of the national anthem at our home games, and I think that having Karen Newman here makes Sunday’s game worth far-beyond the price of admission before the puck even drops.”
As with all Sunday and Wednesday home games, the Fighting Falcons will offer the Family Four Pack for Sunday’s performance and matinee matchup. Fans can get four tickets, four drinks and four hot dogs for just $34.
Representatives from the “Taking a Shot at Breast Cancer” calendar are running a silent auction for pink Fighting Falcons warm-up jerseys, which the team will wear before the game. Sunday’s 50/50 raffle will also benefit the charity group.
