3rd Grade Boy's Performance of the National Anthem Wows Social Media Users

A nine-year-old boy DCorey Johnson has become an internet sensation in the twinkle of an eye after his school shared a video of him singing the National Anthem. 

On April 23, Bates Elementary School in Louisville, Kentucky, shared a video on social media of a nine-year-old boy named DCorey Johnson belting out The National Anthem. 

Johnson held the school's phone mouthpiece (loudspeaker) over his ear as though he wanted to make the morning announcements. However, he gave the announcements a massive upgrade with his performance.
