Congratulations to the Golden State Warriors for winning their first championship in 40 years and to Andre Iguodala for becoming the first NBA Finals MVP to not start a single game during the regular season.

But let’s be honest…the real MVP last night was national anthem singer Marlana VanHoose.

The 19-year-old, who was born blind and suffers from cerebral palsy, absolutely slayed “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

VanHoose certainly had some huge shoes to fill. Usher, Santana, and Metallica were just a few of the A-listers who performed during the Warriors-Cavaliers series.

She regularly sings for the University of Kentucky the the Cleveland Cavaliers during their regular season and was profiled by ESPN in an E:60 special.

Watch VanHoose’s spectacular performance above and learn more about her story below:
