One of the best places to sing is at your own school. Herlof was proud to sing at his home court again in Northwood, ND. It was a Saturday afternoon double-header for the boys and girls teams who hosted a neighboring school. Free popcorn provided by the bank, a fundraiser for a local family, and a first grader proudly singing out the National Anthem. Welcome to small town America! 2/2020.

With his frequent trips to Fargo, Herlof is making some pretty solid friends along the way! He helped kick off the NDSU Women's Basketball game with the Star Spangled Banner this week. Making memories with music!

Herlof was very happy to be invited back for a new season of singing the National Anthem for NDSU Athletics. A wrestling match was his first event one year ago so it was fun to be back with the team again. The Scheels Center at the Sanford Health Athletic Complex is a great facility and it is pretty cool for a little boy to be able to share his voice there for the athletes, the crowd, and the Country.

As we head into the fall season the sports calendars fill up. And along with that the opportunity to hear The Star Spangled Banner skyrockets! Herlof loves to sing the Anthem for people. Typically sporting events request an audition video before letting you sing live. Herlof recently sent an audition video to NDSU. And it should be noted that his family cheers equally loud for UND!

Spend a Day in Medora

 Herlof recently visited Medora, ND for a tiny family vacation. The whole trip was excellent. They were treated to wonderful music everywhere they went! And what a surprise to have a spontaneous invitation to sing a number on stage during the pre-show of the Musical. It's always good to have a few memorized songs in your back pocket!  Video Link. 7/2019

The Greater Grand Forks Fair hosted a local Voice competition this year. Herlof joined in along with his trusty guitar. It was a small but talented group. Herlof got to see others perform different types of music which was fun to see. And Herlof was awarded a 2nd place cash prize which he split between his savings account and Legos. 6/2019

Herlof had the privilege of singing the National Anthem at the 2019 Girl's Class B State Tournament at the Betty Engelstad Area in Grand Forks.  It is quite an experience to lead a group of a few thousand spectators in the National Anthem with a full color guard. 3/2019.

Herlof is a fan of singing the Star Spangled Banner. He is also a fan of NDSU. At 5 years old he led the National Anthem at his very first sporting event, a NDSU wrestling dual. As a gift he received a President Coin from the University President. He also received a blue container of mini m&ms from his mom. He was excited about both! 11/2018.

Singing for the Men's basketball team was a fun experience, so he was very happy to be invited back to sing for the women's team. He was also proud to sport a Bison vest during the event! 12/2018.

You have a lot of pride when you can sing the Star Spangled Banner for your own school team.  And even more pride when following the song you get to give high-fives to the players in the starting lineups! Go Thunder! 1/2019.
