Congratulations to Angela McDermott, Miss Minnesota, who has been chosen for the honor of singing the national anthem for the opening of the Republican National Convention at about 3 p.m. CDT today.
Angie will be representing the great state of Minnesota in the Miss America pageant in January. She's an incredibly talented singer; she won both the talent and interview portions at the Miss Minnesota Scholarship pageant in June before taking home the title of Miss Minnesota.
Congrats to Angie, and the Miss Minnesota progam. She'll do us proud.
