It happened during a basketball game between the Waverly High Tigers and the Portsmouth West High Senators in West Portsmouth, Ohio where Trenton was part of the audience.

Just before the program has started, there were technical difficulties.

The thing was they were also about to sing the national anthem.

Due to the problem with the sound system, there was an awkward silence inside the entire gym. All of the people who were part of the audience were probably waiting for the event organizers to solve the problem.

Except for Trenton.

He knew that he needed to take action so the program would already proceed. And the bigger reason is his love for the song The Star-Spangled Banner, especially that he is from a military family.

Trenton started singing the national anthem with all his heart. He sang every line passionately that’s why if you would watch the video, it would make you emotional.

Not everyone can actually do the same thing especially in front of a crowd. It also shows his love for the country as he was aware of how significant the national anthem is for Americans.

All of us should be reminded of that, too. Hopefully, like Trenton, we’re all willing to sing this precious song with or without musical accompaniment.

After all, it’s not just a song, it’s the national anthem that everyone should sing with respect.

You can watch the video down below and you will surely love this great guy and his voice, of course!
