VIDEO: Campus Officer Steps in for Singer to Perform Stirring Version of National Anthem

When a major snowstorn struck the Eastern United States last month it hit Morgantown, West Virginia, so badly that many, including the scheduled singer of the national anthem, could not attend a West Virginia vs. Kansas college basketball game.

Campus policeman Carlton Smith became the last minute replacement for the absent vocalist and did an excellent job with the task brought before him.

In full uniform, Smith hits all the high notes, with the audience captivated by his rendition. It was like this was the plan all along.

Posted to YouTube by the GFCoyle account, the video of Smith's patriotic performance has gotten over 1.4 million views and 3,300 likes, the Christian Post reports.
