chewbacca mom performs national anthem
Candace Payne isn't just a lady with $5 dollars and a funny Star Wars mask. She's an Internet sensation who was hired to sing the National Anthem for the entire world to hear!
We're not sure if you've heard of her - Chewbacca Mom is just a minor viral sensation, seen by - we dunno - a mere 140 million views on Facebook Live, and she's only gone on to work with the likes of James Corden and J.J. Abrams. No biggie.
But now Candace Payne can add a new talent to her endless list of things that make the world a little bit better; she's performed America's National Anthem 'The Star Spangled Banner'... And she did it surprisingly well.
At a baseball game between Astros and Mariners, the Facebook record-breaker was invited to perform the iconic number, and she obviously did it to thousands of fans applauding her. As if you'd expect anything less.
And just TRY to tell us that you're not walking around with an American accent right now, just because she's made you feel beyond patriotic.
