Opera singer Lynda Canaday, of Lawrence, sings the national anthem before a baseball game between the Kansas City Royals and the New York Yankees on Thursday in Kansas City, Mo.

It's a song that brings people to their feet and has also brought tears to some people's eyes. Lawrence resident Lynda Canaday has never seen that reaction to the national anthem. Tonight, however, she experienced it: singing the Star Spangled Banner before thousands of people at Kaufman Stadium.

Bless her heart, but I could have done a better job.

"Bless her heart, but I could have done a better job. " do you realize just how profoundly stupid and egocentric you sound?

it is worth noting that the PA system at the K was apparently overwhelmed with Lynda's voice on some of the high notes.


the Royals actually won that game and shut out the Yankees...seems the Royals ought to hire Lynda.

a capella, perfectly on pitch. Superior diction, good control, clear tones, broad range. Great job!

Cute, sunshine, real cute. Hiding behind an anonymous users name to ridicule a woman that has overcome the obstacles and challenges that have made up her life since childhood.

You were probably a busy kid at recess time, scaring the blind children, tripping those with mobility problems and imitating any child whose speech didn't meet your standards. Lynda doesn't need your blessings (as if you actually know what that means), but it would probably be nice for her to be able to life her life and enjoy her accomplishments without a playground bully trying to take away any dignity she may have achieved. Do yourself a favor and GROW UP!!!

Wow, what a gorgeous voice. It just glistens. Lawrence is lucky to hear it (and the Royals too, by the outcome things!)

"Bless her heart, but I could have done a better job." That sounds like envy. Are you cultivating a healthy crop of sour grapes because your dreams of singing for such an event didn't come true? The question is one that perhaps you should be asking yourself. Begrudging others their opportunities and spending your energy comparing your abilities to someone else's will only aide you in missing opportunities that may be out there for you and provide more fertile soil for those sour grapes you're growing. You're not hurting Lynda by nursing your wounds with the salty brine of "I could have done a better job." While you are busy with your thinking about how you could do better, life will be passing you by. You "could have done a better job?" I think not my dear. Lynda sings in the fullness of the moment she is in; with renewed life and purpose. Your attitude might get you a soloist job in the "Should've Could've Would've Singers."
