Successful Montgomery County singer will perform tonight's national anthem at RFK Stadium

Before D.C. United kicks off its game against the New England Revolution, fans at RFK Stadium will be treated to a special rendition of the national anthem from Lissette Escobar of Montgomery County. The recent graduate of Richard Montgomery High School has been a member of the Madrigal Choir at St. Mary’s Catholic Church and even had the opportunity to sing Mass in the Vatican during a school trip to Italy. A long-time fan of D.C. United, Escobar also had an active role in her high school with activities ranging from student government to cheerleading, in addition to membership with the Girl Scouts. This fall, she will attend Catholic University to study economics.
